You can do it! I'm 57 and started this almost 2 years ago. I've had some ups and downs but have done several 5ks and like doing them. I'm not fast but I don't care, I do it to challenge myself. Good luck with your training and your 5k!
I'm 52 and I'm planning to run my first 5K April 14. I'm working up slowly too. I was so excited about running and working out again that I overdid it about a month ago. I had to let my knees catch up with my excitement!
Run, girlie, run! And I'll keep running too.

Hi! I'm enjoying doing the C25K program, and I'm track for a 5K on April 21. My main running goals are to 1. not get injured!, and 2. get to a point where I can comfortably run abut 5 miles, 4 - 6 tmes a week. I see that happening maybe in a year or so, but I don't really know how my 42 year old body is going to adapt to this new activity. I'm going to take it slow, because my primary goal is to make progress without getting sidelined by an injury.
