Couch to 5K

Nine weeks ago to this very day

I started to run from Couch to 5K

A treadmill was used in reaching my goal

The sweat and the pain was taking its toll

But as weeks went by things seemed to improve

I started to settle and get into the groove

And now I have done it and reached my 5K

I've now graduated I'm so pleased to say

The next step for me to continue the grind

Is to take to the road and leave the treadmill behind
