Reaching week 5 really gave me the encouragement I needed to keep going. Before I knew it I reached my goal and ran 5k for 30 minutes solid. It was a huge achievement and I felt amazing as I never thought I would be able to run 5k but the C25K app really does give you the motivation you need to succeed and I noticed how much more energy I had too!
My advice to anybody thinking of trying the C25K app would be to give it a go and you really will surprise yourself. I actually began to enjoy running and found it a great way to let off steam after a manic day. I looked forward to escaping the house for half an hour whenever I could. I have continued the jogging kept increasing my fitness levels and even getting a bit competitive, trying to beat my personal best....unbelievable!
