Well I have graduated On Monday 22rd July 2013, but now storming it on that day I ran for 52 minutes and did it in 8.04kms with a pace of 6mins 30 per km. On Wednesday I ran for 9.85km as I wanted to run for an hour, i was shocked (and a bit disappointing) that I didnt just stay on until 10k, i should of checked Nike app, so on Friday I put that right and ran for 12.2km for 1 hour 20 dead chuffed, I was tired after that one but it was really worth it,

C25k has been really good at getting me going with running but id say its been easy for me, after all I didn't really start from the couch as i have been doing a lot of hill walking in the winter.

I have lost weight too, ive always had an Ideal BMI but now on 14% body fat

I also have tried the graduate stepping stones but I think I need to run those when I want to aim for that, my plan at the moment is to do one hour runs but id like to consider shorter faster runs with a specific aim later.

I plan to join my local road runners and have an aim to do some events with them, 10k etc and looking to do the London Marathon, im thinking aiming for 2015 for that one.

But the really great thing is i have now inspired my partner to start these and he has now done 2 of week 1 so far (and i went out with him)
