Getting ready for a 5K

YES YES YES - I have done it! oh er
Oh lord I have registered and printed off my barcode.
Brilliant!!! You will do great, just do your own thing and enjoy it! Look forward to hear how you get on. Good luck!
Thanks - Am slightly nervous now - but also I reckon I will feel great after....
I also recommend parkrun. If you want to see what it is like and meet some of the people then I found it good to volunteer one week. Everyone is very friendly.
I didn't get on with the NHS C25K but instead used Rundouble c25k and set the alerts to change between walking and running to vibrate only. That way I wasn't clock watching which I found off putting and could just put the phone in a pocket or armband.
My sister started running using lampposts or other distance markers. Start running to the first lamppost then walk to next etc. The following week run for two lampposts, walk for two or one depending on your stamina and slowly build from there. Sometimes it is easier to persuade yourself to carry on to something you can see rather than keep going for a certain length of time.
