Determined to do it this time

I've started Couch to 5K three times and each time got to week 2 and then lost all of my motivation. I've entered a 5k race in mid June and this time I really want to stick with the programme and try to complete this without walking. The race is to raise money but ultimately this about getting off the couch and trying to increase my fitness. Just completed Week 1 Run 1 and feeling good. Planning to blog my progress as reading all the blogs here has helped to increase my motivation - this time I will do it!

  • Well done. I am the exact same as you started numerous times but hoping to do it all this time. Just did week 2 run 2 so going ok! This site is great for encouragement and motivation. Good luck :)

  • Thank you - been reading your blogs and you are doing brilliantly. Think I found run 1 not too bad because I've done it before 3 times before - week 2 will be unknown territory!

  • Aw thanks! I felt the same though I'd done week 1 so often it wasn't too bad haha. Week 2 is different but enjoying it!

  • Yes you will or I will hunt you down!!!! Keep going, you will feel amazing :)

  • Karleen best don't want PatButcher hunting you down!!

    Keep it up, its so worth it and you'll feel fab!!! Good luck and keep posting as you'll get all the support you need on here!!!

  • I'm finding everyones support for each other on here really motivating so no plans to give up - plus now that PatButcher is after me I'm running scared!
