I'm a C25K Graduate :)

Well, sort of.

For the past 9 weeks I've been following the Couch to 5K programme.  A programme that claims to get you running for 30mins/5K from nothing.  Well, it did!  Today I completed my final run - YAY!  I did the programme for time rather than distance so have actually only run 4k (as I'm super slow :) ) but am proud of myself anyway.  The next step is to complete 5K and then who knows?!

I still find it hard to believe that I can run for 30 minutes without stopping!  When I started the programme 2 months ago I couldn't even run to the end of the road!  Anyone who thinks they can't run should try it. It's hard, a real challenge, but I loved it! 


  1. Last night, i was worrying because i knew i was going running with my boyfriend this morning and didnt think i would be able to run more than 2 minutes and give up.

    After google-ing a bit i found out about c25k, and then came across your blog.

    I read the whole of your c25k journey, and felt inspired that i could do the same.

    Today i started week 1.1 and it loved it!
    So thank you for inspiring me to do this.

    im keeping a blog too :

    Thanks, Gemma

  2. Your running shoes still look nice and clean. Mine are filthy black! I'm definitely going for a darker colour shoe, next time!

    As I've already said on RF, congratulations on becoming a C25k graduate!

  3. My shoes are STILL quite clean actually, but then I only run on roads and tracks so unless there are puddles I don't really get mucky. I think darker colours overall is a much more sensible idea! Why are they mostly white??

    Thanks for your lovely comment Gemma, I've been keeping an eye on your blog too :) If I can do it you can! (even if you've had to wait a week!)
