Couch 2 5k completed

From really struggling to even run for 60 seconds to completing the program has been really worthwhile _ I can really recommend this program.

There were times when it all looked too difficult but now just completed the plan a week ago and ran for 6.4KM yesterday - looking to now build on this achievement.

However id did take me 12 weeks to complete as I repeated some of the weeks twice, the end result has been the ability to deal with stress effectively, better nights sleep and a good feeling. That coupled with a healthy eating routine I have lost 1 st 5 lbs

  • That's brilliant! I finished yesterday :-)

    Running 6.4k is fantastic - I'm nowhere near the 5k yet but I'm sure it will come. Like you, I found running 60 seconds difficult at the beginning but now I can run for 30 minutes - incredible!

  • very well done edensmiths 6.4 km is great too . you must be very proud of yourself

  • fantastic news, Just completed run 1 of week 9 before the rain started.

    Distance was 4.26km but I feel so slow and other runners shoot past me all the time.

    So pleased you have made only 2 more to go for me.
