    Couch to 5K support thread. 4th Sep 16 at 7:27 PM
    I have looked for a similar thread, but they are all over 1 year old, and dead. So i thought I'd start a new one!

    I am on a mission to get healthier and fitter.
    In 2010 i gave up smoking, and in Feb 2016 i gave up drinking alcohol. I feel like fitness is my last 'thing'.
    I hate exercise, and am incredibly unfit. I could do with losing 10lbs too.

    I am about to start the Couch to 5K programme, does anyone else want to join me? Or has anyone else just started/completed/have experience of doing this?

    Iíve heard about C25K and attempted it only making it to W4. I was going to a gym before work and found every excuse you can think of after a little while.

    Now Iíve got a treadmill at home and Iím going attempt this again determined to see it through. I think I scared myself after attempting W4D1 and struggling with it.

    Today was a milestone for me as I finally (!!) managed 5km A very, very slow 5Km at 37.52 but still! I'd been happy for a few weeks at 4.5km when I had a terrible run on Saturday and only managed 2km before stopping... think it was a combination of being far too hot (sudden one-off temperature surge that morning), too many people around, which made me self-conscious and then, to top it all off, a man pinched my bottom as I ran past!! Anyway, it all knocked my confidence so am doubly pleased to have got out there and done it this morning! WOO! Still debating signing up for the parkrun... I'll be in the area the weekend after next...
