Elated after Week 3 Run 1

Yay! Feeling rather elated after completing the first run of Week 3 today.

Drove to my local Country Park with my hubby for a change of scenery. Was feeling a little nervous at the prospect of a slightly longer run...Laura, bless her heart, soon put me at ease and before I knew it I was halfway through. I have to say I really enjoyed myself and am so looking forward to Run 2!

I've been looking for some running shoes but haven't yet found a pair comfortable for me and rather than settle for anything I'd rather wait and be sure as hopefully they'll be carrying me over many miles in the future!

Well done, Debsie!! You are doing wonderfully!!

I would highly suggest a gait analysis to go with that running shoe purchase. I never realized that selecting the proper shoe was so very important!!

Keep Running!!


Thankyou for the encouragement. I never thought I'd be enjoying myself as much as I all these wonderful fellow Couch to 5Kers are a definite bonus!


Great job Debsie and hubby! :-) Shoes will make all the difference in the world! My thoughts were, we were doing something free so why not pay more for the gear? No membership fees etc. :-) PLUS, new stuff will make you run faster and jump higher! :-)


Quite right...I do like the bargains tho...picked up some great trousers and a jacket from Aldi today...oh and a couple of pairs of socks! Now I just have to model it!
