I've done it, I've finally completed the couch to 5k challenge. So proud of myself, never ever thought I'd be able to run for 5mins never mind complete 5k and now I've done 5k twice this week already. Yahoo!!!
I'm 53, very overweight and had never ran till a few months ago, so if I can do it anyone can. Go on give it a go, just take it very slowly and if you find one week difficult do it again till you feel confident. Don't worry about speed or distance just concentrate on keeping going for the time set for the week.
Now I'm looking forward to my next 5k run on Friday. Is this really me talking or have I been taken over by aliens?
