Couch to 5K

Too soon to do a Jubilee fun run?

I'm on week 6 run 2 (tomorrow) and finding it ok ( much better when it's not very hot!). On Sunday there is a 3k fun run round the local park and I was thinking about registering.

Monday will be week 7 run 1 so I could do it at the fun run on Sunday instead? End of week 6 is Friday so I will still have a day rest.

I covered over 2 miles on my 20 minute run on Friday, so I think 3k should be ok.

What do you experienced people think!

I think there is a clue in 'fun' - this sounds like it will be ok to run / walk / run. You are more than up to running the distance anyway. Go have a ball!


Do it and send us all a match report!


Go for it! Just go slow and walk if you need to.

Let us know how you get on. I wish there was one near me to do.


I think this sounds like great fun! And it's nice that it isn't too long. I bet there will be folk of all ages and shapes doing this, and think how nice it'll be to mark the long weekend by doing something special! Go for it!


Go for it! :)


Why miss something that you will never get the chance of again in your lifetime. Its a FUN run, if you have to walk a bit so what. Don't miss this because you haven't finished this programme. Good luck, enjoy and let us know how you get on. :)

Anyone else who has a similar run 3 or 5K give it a go, you can walk some of it if you need to, listen to your body, that means legs as well. Just have FUN 8-)


Ok, I have sent off the registration form!

I have decided to raise some money for a special charity, too. I can't back out then!

Thanks for the encouragement!
