I'm sitting here writing this covered in sweat in tears and red as a tomato, after one of the hardest runs in a while, but do you know what, I don't care because I've just graduated!
My last run was 2 weeks ago so I was worried about this one, the weather is so humid outside and I was scared I wasn't going to complete it and to be honest, I had moments in the run where I did feel like giving up. But I didn't! I was so determined, I wasn't going to make the first run I gave up on my graduation run so I just ran for my life!
I only managed to run 3.9km, so still a good 1k away from my goal but I honestly don't care! Looking back to when I started c25k, struggling with some of the runs, having bouts of no motivation and nearly fainting after a run, its incredible how far I have come!
I really don't know how I've done it! Admittedly its taking me more than 9 weeks but all that matters is that I can now run for 30 minutes straight! Not only that but I'm getting muscle definition and I'm getting so much fitter, I'm just excited for what the future holds as a runner!
Thank you so much for every single one of you who have a some point commented on my blog, it has helped me so much, as I'm sure you all know! There were some runs I would only do so that I could read the comments for my blog!
This plan really does do wonders and I wish everyone the best of luck who are still on their journey, just believe in yourself because trust me, you can do it.
Funnily enough I encouraged one of my friends to come out with me for my run today and she is now starting c25k! I feel like I'm passing on the baton but if I have managed to inspire one person then my job is done
So I say, for the last time, thank you so much Laura and NHS for creating this plan and really changing my life for the better. Whatever I choose to do next I am 100% going to carry on blogging, and you never know, I might be running marathons one day!
Happy running everyone, I'll update you all with a blog soon
