Couch to 5K

Graduated!!!!!!!

Have just run 5.23k in 39.5 mins - according to Runkeeper!! I've made it!! Started this plan in the middle of feb with a friend, and we have repeated weeks sometimes, been away on holiday etc so it's taken until now. But this proves that you can all do it too.

I'm 62 and had never run in my life before. Its made a huge difference and literally put a spring in my step. Wish I'd known about it years ago. I could have saved a fortune at the gym. The other thing is that this is enjoyable and the gym seemed a chore.

Keep going everyone and don't be discouraged if you slip back. You'll get there.
