hello im a newbie


My name is Audrey and im new to this site and new to running.

Ive lost just over four stone in 8 months with Slimming World, to help with the last bit if weight loss and to maintain i decided to start running.  My husband runs regularly and ive always envied him a little. So i decided 1st Jan this yr to start the couch to 5k plan.  I can now run up to 25 mins now without stopping and run an average of 3 miles in this time.  My own target was to run 5 miles (i achieved 5.4 miles last week) and be able to run for over 30 mins which im getting too.


Im so pleased with myself and even though my thighs and calfs are aching its a good ache .


many thanks for reading, looking forward to being part of this communty
