Just completed week 9 today! So happy with what I've accomplished! I actually ran the week 9 runs for 40 minutes instead of 30. Thinking back, I can hardly believe the difficulty I had merely getting through week 1. This program DOES work! As an added bonus, I'm a solid 20 pounds lighter and feeling fantastic! Thanks to all for sharing experiences to inspire others. I won't win any road races yet, but I'm confident that I can get the 5k completed in 30 minutes before long. Best to all!

Comments: I love the programme! I would never have thought I could run for even 5 minutes nor call myself a runner after I finished week 9. I'm going to re-run week 8 and 9 until the "5k to 10k" app is out. No pressure
I'm so proud of myself for doing this for my health.

Comments: I just want to say thank you for the C25K app - it has been amazing! Just completed week 9 - I'm going to stick to 3 half hour runs each week! Never in my life did I think I'd be able to run for 30 mins solid and actually enjoy it and actively look forward to it! It's been a revelation! Doing Race for Life on the 6th July - can't wait!!! Thank you again xxx

Thoroughly enjoyed the program. No way I thought when I started & struggled through the walk/run combos in week 1-2. Now pushing the 30 minute run including hills and never stopped....

I took 12 weeks to complete the plan and I couldn't have done it without Claire's reassuring voice! I'm so happy to have stuck with it and now aim to work on distance and speed. Thanks to all at Get Running - it's a brilliant app!
I had an injury right after that and was off until spring, so I used the app again in 2013. Kept running - and running - and running. Last December (2015) I crossed the finish line at my first full marathon. I really don't know if I could have done it without this app - it's awesome. Thanks!
(By the way, for anyone reading - that first 20 minute run was tougher than the last 20 minutes of the marathon! Push through it - you can do this! And it only gets easier once you've made it through this training.)
