  1. Can you believe it. I actually did it! The first km was up a slight hill, I got a stitch and my breathing was horrible. I nearly started crying but then was like, you got this, you've been running 5km at training a few weeks ....... Then I just settled into a rhythm and the last 4km was good! So grateful for the c25k app and these forums, I'm now doing the 10k app . Good luck to everyone else aiming for their first 5km fun run, honestly if I can do it, anybody can !!!

    Slow "running"

    That's my thinking too as I'm really slow .....
  3. I'm more worried about tripping and getting injured I'm a klutz

    KellyAnn that is gold !!! I wouldn't know whether to laugh at her or punch her
  6. Anyone on here from south Australia? I'm pretty over running in the morning pitch black and can't wait for daylight savings to change in April. How do you guys cope with the running early morning in the black?

    Tips for getting up early and running?

    I am also not a morning person but it really is the best time for me due to work on-call etc - try as I might night running doesn't happen. I force myself - clothes out night before, get my half banana ready, phone and music charged up, alarm set. When it goes I force myself up right away and no snooze. Once I get out running I think, this is great, so peaceful, quiet. I wouldn't say I love my training sessions yet, but after I feel great. Good luck

    Halfway there and Haven't Quit Yet!

    I'd like to think I can get to expand to 10k. With my 5k so slow it seems impossible

    First 5km fun run ..... Ever

    Thanks Ruthie I appreciate the support
  10. Ok need some encouragement here, have slowly progressed thru the c25k and am now registered for my first 5km fun run on 3 April. Slightly shitting myself to say the least! I'm really slow, taking 45-50 mins to complete 5km but my goal is just to finish! Wish me luck !

    Coming up on Week 8, a little discouraged

    I want to quit.

    I graduated the c25k last year - never a runner in my life! I hadn't done a good run for 6 weeks, eaten a lot, drank a whole lot of red wine. This morning I set my 5.30am alarm ...... Knew it was going to be a struggle re-starting ...... But boy I feel great now. I'm determined to get fit again and run 2-3x per week. I need to stay motivated! (And lose weight ..... Again ......)
