Agree welcome hanna this might be useful to you if you havn't seen it already. http://www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/couch-5K-running-plan.aspx
Only thing would add is your a goddess already chuck so don't beat yourself up about it. Running can be very rewarding through and fun. There are a lot of nutter's on here in a good way that can help you and share jokes.
When I first started c25k I was only working 4 days a week so would go on runs the 3 days I had off. Several times this would mean running on 3 days in a row and I noticed my legs got really sore so I'd say try and avoid that. But other than that it sounds like you're doing well. Keep at it!
well done, keep it up, it will get easier!
ditto on the parkrun advice, they are great for beginners and experienced runners alike from 8 - 80 (actually the youngest at our local one is 5 years old!) - am guessing from the 5k run you are doing that you might be in the swindon area? if so there is a parkrun nearby
Well done! Just keep plodding on and you will get there. I started with 2 min run- 1 min walk about 4 months ago and slowly incresed my running every week. This past Monday I managed to run for 30 mins without stopping which is the longest Ive managed in years!
Cheesy, but I like it:
Inspires me anyway.
that is a great video
well done your already a winner making the decission to get fit...good luck you!
Good for you, Hannah! The Couch 2 5k is an amazing plan - it really does work, I'm living proof. Before that plan, once around my (local) block was enough for me to have to literally go home and crash! Now, I've run 9 miles without a break (and I didn't have to crash upon returning home).
(Love the name, by the way. )
