Not meaning to boast or anything but, according to my new friend Endomondo, I just ran for 30 minutes exactly, and covered 5.05k! Or 5k in 29 minutes and 36 seconds. I began couch25k on 2 July and followed the plan exactly. I was sixty years old when I started, and right now I feel like eighty-five! Please may I have a green badge?
I did it, I did it, I did it!: Not meaning to... - Couch to 5K
Woo, congrats Send JR21 a message and he'll sort out your shiny new badge
Just amazing! I've just got week 1 under my belt today. I'm scared of the extra 30 seconds coming up next week. I cannot imagine running for 30 minutes.
It's blogs like this though that really inspire me to give it my best. I want to earn my green badge too.
Well done on your achievement!
Hezza, it was a piece of cake (snort!). Seriously though, I found W1 a killer, and only just got through it. But every week you look back on the weeks gone by, and think how easy they would be compared to what you're doing now! Fear not, you'll get there, and don't hesitate to ask for help or advice, or to air your doubts and fears - the guys on here are just ace, so motivational. All the best, and thanks.
Brilliant Fenella well done.
Well done, congratulations. Blogs like yours really inspire, thank you
Many thanks, linzw, it's nice to have one's efforts recognised! I can't deny that it's been hard work, left it a bit late to begin a running career too, but I got there in the end - and so will you. Look forward to seeing your name in lights in a few weeks' time! Thanks again.
What a fantastic achievement, enjoy the feeling
Aw, thanks Phil, much appreciated. As a recent graduate, and an ex-smoker, you'll know just how hard it was for this (still-smoking) granny to get there! Don't know what next, don't think I'm a natural runner - in fact, I KNOW I'm not - but it seems a shame to waste the smart new pants, the running shoes, and the past couple of months. Maybe try to give up the smokes, and keep running from time to time, we'll see. Many thanks again, and enjoy your 10k journey.
Congratulations, Fenella8, you've done brilliantly. Speedy, too, the legendary 5K in 30 minutes. Well done!
Many thanks, Soozz. Have been following your progress, and can't help but admire your commitment and positive outlook. Look forward to seeing your name in lights any day now. All the best.
Wow - what a fantastic time too, well done!
very cool, congratulations!
Cool was the last thing you'd have called me when I finished! But very many thanks, and good luck with your running career.
Big congrats, that's amazing !! You should be soooo proud of yourself. I was doubting myself and the plan until I completed W5R3 at the weekend, never thought I'd run for 20mins and I wasn't too far off the pace for 5k in 30mins. Blogs like yours show that it is possible and I just have to push myself.
Well done again
Well done, congratulations!
Well done you should be very proud
Fantabulous! the green badge will look super next to your name.
Big congrats! x
Really, fantastic, WELL DONE an inspiration to us following C25K for sure
