Wk 9 R3 done this morning - ouf! V slow as i was still tired from an exhausting weeked, but i stuck to the keeping-going-is-more-important-than-speed mantra and got through to, my great relief. Now i just need to set my self some more targets so as to keep going. Think i'll try to do 5k irrespective of how long it takes next (i've been doing abt 4.24 km in the 30 mins, so it'll take a while)
Done it: Wk 9 R3 done this morning - ouf! V... - Couch to 5K
Well done you. It doesn't matter about the distance at the moment you have completed the programme and can run for 30 mins. So great and congratulations. i'm only 2 days ahead of you and still feeling so pleased. I'm only doing about the same distance as you so yes my target is to do the full 5k. We'll get there. Again well done you. Go celebrate.
Congratulations on your fabulous achievement! You should be very very proud
I was taking about 42 mins to do 5k but have whittled it down over the months (33 mins at last Saturday parkrun) but all I care is that I love it and am still seeing amazing progress!
Good luck on all future runs. If you can do parkrun and/or join a club at any point I reckon you will not regret it!
Well done you, and welcome to the club. My next goal is 5k as I'm a bit off that at the moment. I tried the stepping stone podcast last night and I'm a bit off the pace of that too so I think I'm going to go back to some of the earlier podcasts and just run them at a faster pace and see how I get on.
Enjoy the moment and feel really proud of yourself
Thanks so much everyone for your supportive messages - as for so many others, this blog as really helped me get through. it's especially reassuring to find others who are doing similar times, and good to hear comments abt the other podcasts
Deryn, thanks for the suggestion of parkrun/club. It does sound a good idea and i'm a sociable sort so would be easier to keep up in company. only thing is i live right out in the country so will have to travel to find one. But will try.
Silly question: what does one do to get the 'graduate' box after your name?
