Couch to 5k

So I’m getting my butt off the couch and I’m going to get so awesome at running that I can run 5k in a row without stopping. I know, I know, it’s impressive right? (BTW if you can run 10k without stopping you aren’t allowed to answer that).  I am enjoying this process so much that I am actually considering moving on to the 5k to 10k program after I finish this one but let’s see how it goes first.  I just might be getting ahead of myself (NEVER).

These pages are just to record my vital stats from run to run and give you a little update on what is happening. I use the Run Double app. It has a GPS so it tracks my distance and speed and I am totally in love with it. The stats keep me motivated. It even gives me a little stat update after each running interval which I LOVE as if I find my speed it dropping back then I know to pick it up a little if possible the next interval. It’s great fun and really interesting to track my progress.

FYI – I don’t include distance, pace etc of my 5 mins warm up and cool down. The stat are for my interval training only. Click on the relevant week below for all zee details…

  2. This is awesome! I started with a goal of 5k in April this year and have been running ever since. It’s crazy how you kind of fall in love with it after a bit! If you want some moral support (as in, I feel your pain and we can celebrate our victories with a glass of wine because wine and because running is hard) come on over to my page on Saturdays for my stat posts. 🙂
    Keep it up!!

  3. Keep up the good work! I would love to start something like this and was thinking of investing in a running pushchair to make it possible with Molly but then I questioned if I would actually stick to it! Go you! xx
