Who'd have thought it?

Thought I'd share! I started Couch to 5K after having an op in the summer and losing loads of weight, a new healthy fit me! When I started the programme I could not believe that I would ever be able to run for a full 30 mins without stopping. BUT I have done it!! I now run 5K regularly and once these pesky Christmas hols are over I will be adding more distance. Thank you Laura and NHS choices for a brilliant programme and to those of you struggling out there KEEP AT IT!! and good luck.
