Definitely!
Two years for me now.
I'm currently doing a RED for charity
(Run every day)
I'm actually doing 4 charity events this month-all exercise based.
If you had told me I'd be doing this 2 years ago, I would have said you're nuts!
I'm not fast. I call myself a plodder, but I'm out there doing it 😊🏃💪
Yes the trainers cost. (And I like pretty running gear! ) but the roads are free
I've had 2 injuries that stopped me for a month each time, but I got back out there and repeated C25K.

Not only did I finish it in a great time (wanted sub 5 and did it in 4:44) I loved every mile!

It took me 18 months to go from couch to marathon

Good luck!

Wow, wow, wow...this is amazing, well done you 👏👏👏

Such an inspiration!

I did the C25K 7yrs ago and I recommend it to all my friends. I was always a non runner and didnt think I could run, but with the plan it showed me that I could. I did repeat weeks or do extra days the following week if I struggled or wanted extra practise before I moved on to the next week. I also printed out a chart and coloured in the days/sessions once Id completed them. Once I realised I could run I trained for various events and have done a couple of half marathons, The London Marathon and few events in between. I now run once or twice a week with a social running club and do Bootcamp twice a week.
I have dipped back into the plan if I have had some time off running and Ive been out with my kids doing it too, but unfortunately I havent managed to convert them totally.
Give it a go, the satisfaction of completing it is amazing.

Nobody hates running more than me! But myself and my hubby decided to give it a go 2 years ago. When I say that I was out of breath running for 1 minute Im not exaggerating, however by the end of it I was literally doing 5k. I lost weight and felt healthier. Only problem is we didnt keep it up. I find I need to do it with someone to spur me on. If Im on my own I get bored very quickly. I tried it again last year but only managed about 2 weeks 😕 but yes 100% it works.

Did our first run today. Went much better than I expected! Will see if my legs are sore tomorrow though. Hopefully I can keep it up!

Just remember to take at least a days rest between runs
