It took four months, but I finished Couch to 5k. Actually, what I did was the time-based menu of Couch to 5k, so I'm running something like 3.5k two or three times a week. Which means I'm running 7 to 10 km more per week than I used to. That's major self improvement.
I don't have any races planned, because my motivation is better health. I do want to see if I can increase my speed, since that's the only way to challenge myself if I don't want to run for a longer time.
So anyway, yay me! And I'm going to take a bath and go to bed because the weather is supposed to be nice tomorrow morning and I can run for the first time in about a week.
