Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not a runner. I have spent my whole life telling anyone who will listen that I am not a runner, and I have always hated running. Yet, as a 50+ year old, I have this nagging urge to be able to run, and an ambition to make it round a 5k course without stopping, collapsing or, even worse, dying!
So, I have just spent half an hour on a cold winter evening doing the third run of week 1 of c25k. I would never have thought I could do that and even enjoy it, but I have. So, I am inspired to keep going, with the support of the Notts Women Runners Group I have joined - who got people through before me, I know because I have spoken to some of them!
I am not certain I will make it to the 5k graduation Park Run as I have a slightly dodgy right knee (and probably weak Achilles tendons) but so far so good!
Well done Gill and thanks for contributing. We look forward to the next update.

If you are starting your Couch 25k journey then what better way to mark the achievement than with this stunning C25K medal. You can even surprise a loved one with it by presenting it to them on their completion.
