1 year ago today I graduated from c25k and it's the best thing I've ever done .

I still remember how hard those 60 seconds of running felt and I had few doubts along the way that I could do it.

But if one thing I'm determined and I kept going .

The plan is great and you people on here are the best , I couldn't have done it without you and I really mean that.

Even now on this form you are always there.

So thank you my VRB's

I second that! Buddy34 was the reason I didn’t give up and am still receiving great support when times are hard or I’m celebrating so thank you.

Congratulations, happy runiversary to you Buddy34, pity about your cold that you could not celebrate it with a parkrun this morning, however, you were very wise on not running, it could have made your cold worse, especially in this rainy ☔ Saturday morning.

I managed to get a 30 minute run this morning as the rain went off for a short while, didn't stay off for long, the run was run 2 of week 3 of Ju Ju's Magic 10.

I am a Graduate10 but decided to do the plan as I have not ran a 10K since November 2019.

I usually run on a Wednesday morning, however, next Wednesday I have a eye test at 9.15 am so I intend to run, run 3 of week 3 of the plan which is 44 minutes on Tuesday afternoon.

I will try and fit the shorter 15 minutes run of the plan, probably on Monday

Keep warm and dry-apart from when you take the dog a walk.

Thanks AlMorr and yes that's what I was thinking that I could have been celebrating with a parkrun. But there is no way I could have ran I just don't have the energy .

Nice that we have met twice in person and I hope to join you at Dunfermline parkrun this year. 😊

I will be running at Drumpellier this year, I got a PB there, I hope, some time in March, I might meet you again, it's my second favourite parkrun and during the week, usually a Monday, it's one of my favourite walks,

The reason I make Dunfermline my favourite is for the last 10 years, at least once a month I have gone a walk through that park, always on a Friday, only last year I realised that they held a parkrun there, yes it would be nice if you ran at Dunfermline parkrun some time this year.

What I am now going to do is to read the parkrun reports from runners who took part this morning and have a look, when they come through at the Vitality Parkrun results from Drumpellier and Dunfermline.

Happy Runniversary Buddy :-)

Everyone is right, you're one of the BEST and a great VFriend as well as VRB.

I've been really lazy about writing just lately *makes mental note to get back to it*, I'll see how my intervals go tomorrow and if I'm shower dodging or just going for it.

Yes I did and although it was grey skies, no rain / wind. (Different story later in the day!) So I was there for their 200th run and really enjoyed it. No cake though!
