Yesterday was my FIRST run and I must say it was easier than expected. The anticipation, much like when you are waiting to receive an injection, was worse than the actual activity itself. I felt that it was even easy :). It cannot be too difficult when I am running in the sunshine and warmth alongside the beauuuutiful ocean right? I am very much looking forward to tomorrow and W1R2.
W1R1: Yesterday was my FIRST run and I must say... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Good for you! Presumably you're not in the UK with sunshine, warmth and ocean?
All bleakness and darkness here! Enjoy tomorrow's run!
Welcome! Sunshine, warmth AND an ocean? At the risk of turning green with envy....where are you? Clearly not anywhere within running distance of here!!! (Although I can now run 5k, albeit very slowly!)
This programme should really be called 'couch to running 30 mins'! Not a lot of us manage to run 5k in the 30 minutes, that usually comes after graduation and for some of us never in 30 minutes. Just take it slowly and steady (TM - Greenlegs) and enjoy the journey. Keep blogging and popping on here for encouragement, it's a wonderful supportive community
Welcome!!!! I too am envious of you posting about sunshine, warmth and the ocean. I will trade you some snow, ice and wind??? Husband and I live in the USA and finished C25k, B210K and just now signed up for the 5x50 challenge you will be seeing bits of here on the board. Like Khrissy wrote, I will probably never see a 30 minute 5K. Just try to go for time running, speed will eventually build as you build fitness. Good luck! Gayle
Aah, I'm so jealous! I've visited Vancouver a lot and can almost picture the places where you run - absolutely beautiful.
Anyway, welcome! First, and generally the hardest, part of stepping out of the door for w1r1 is complete already
Not what you're looking for?

how far I've run? How do we know we'll actually run 5km or is the timing more key than the distance?
