I have done it.... I done it..... I done it..... I done it.....
Just back from my graduation run, Its a strange feeling, a great one though. I've never been a big achiever, never went to college never took part in any sports of any sort, I was always the one with a forged signature from my mum to get out of P.E class. Or hiding behind the wall in cross country, smoking.
Its brilliant, I have found a new me from this programme, one I fully intend to keep, I have always been envious of those sporty types who get up and actually do something with their lives other than get up go to work, get home do some housework then straight to bed.
Reflecting back their have been tough moments, hilarious moments, and those moments when you realise, wow I actually just did that.... when you thought it would never been possible.
This forum has been a godsend, I have gained so much from it, from reading everyone's stories, sharing troubles and the amazing encouragement that people have given me, genuinely without you all even those I have never spoken to, I couldn't have done this, I would have given up. Writing this blog has also been great therapy, with an uninterested other half, its been great to get in from a run and pour everything out.
I just want to say thank you to everyone, you lot are an amazing bunch of people, so inspirational and kind.
So anyways my final run went well done the 5k in 34:49 which was up on my park run time from Saturday, not my best, but, I'm still very pleased im managing to get the 5k.
So what does the future hold, I'm thinking to myself just now, well I want to keep running 3 times a week, I always thought I would aim for the 10k after this, but now I'm thinking I may just concentrate on getting my 5k time as low as I can under the 30 minutes. As its easier to fit in the time to exercise when its only half an hour rather than an hour.
But I'm also thinking about cycling, does anyone know if their are any plans similar to this to help with getting into cycling. (will also post this as a question)
Oh also I checked out my stats from the start of the programme to now, and...
I've lost 2.8kg,
......2 flippen inches !!! off my chest !!! eh ? what's all that all about ? I would quite like that back please !
1 inch from my waist
1 inch from my hips
That's all without much change in my diet although I am drinking more water, and eating very slightly less.
So that's me, I done it, I have graduated ! (big contented sigh!)
Good luck to everyone still on the plan, you CAN do it. You will do it.
