Today’s the day and we’re off - Run 1 C25K

Updated: Feb 28, 2021

Hello CheeziJoggers,


Well, today is the first day of our 9 week challenge on the Couch to 5 K programme. How are you feeling? Excited? Nervous? Determined? Focused? I have to admit I am slightly daunted by the prospect but equally excited and determined that I CAN and WILL do this, despite being a non-runner!


Remember you can complete your runs at times that are convenient to you and the app recommends that you allow yourself at least a days rest in between especially if you are a beginner. All you have to do is complete 3 in a week.


Are you an early bird? Perhaps you might squeeze it into your lunch break or maybe later is the day as a way of de-stressing after a busy day at work. Whenever you choose to do it, be sure to let us know.


Evidence suggests that running regularly will improve the health of your heart and lungs.


There's also evidence it may help increase bone density in some people, which can help protect against bone diseases like osteoporosis.


There are also mental benefits of running. Taking on the challenge of Couch to 5K can help boost your confidence and self-belief, as you prove to yourself that you can set yourself a target and achieve a goal.



Hooray! Run 1 completed and I'm still smiling at the end. I'm feeling quite chuffed and even more determined now 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️


Keep us updated with your progress and we look forward to seeing your pics. Good luck everyone, you've got this!!


It's still not too late to join in, you can download the app HERE.

So here we are #Day1 and I’m not going to lie I’ve been awake since the early hours, secretly happy that I had to go to work, and the run would “have to wait until I finished”. Until of course my lovely boss calls to remind me that I’d offered to stay on later tomorrow, in return for a morning off today. So, come on Shelley, no excuse now. Get your trainers and that £40 over the shoulder Boulder holder on (that I’ve been justifying to the hubby ever since!) and get out the door!


So all ready, and after giving myself a ten minute pep talk reaffirming that the builders in Sherford will not care my wiggly behind, point…
