I completed the whole 9 weeks of the Couch to 5k programme and (along with weight watchers) managed to lose the final stone that's been hanging around my bottom for the last 3 years!!! So really chuffed!
I had to have back surgery 3 years ago and had severe siatica for 10 years previous to that and one week after completing the running my back went. Three weeks down the line, and plenty of pain relief later, I feel that I am ready to start running again - I am shocked at how much I am missing it (as a total non-runner pre C25K) and just want to be out there in the wind and rain of a british summer!
I'm thinking about going back to week 6.........anyone got any advice as to this is about right - or any hints on how to get back to 5k asap??
All help appreciated!
And for those of you just starting out - it really works!!!!!
