I've just got back from week 9 run 3 and i managed 5k in 34 minutes! I'm so so happy. C25k has taken me months, due to uni work, night shifts, injury, illness but I'm finally there, and i cant believe what I have achieved! In October last year i couldnt run to the end of the street, and I've just run 5k in 34 mins! It truely an amazing programme!

Ill be smiling all day now!
