W8R1 - Now I Know I Can Complete C25K!

Just a quick update to say that I successfully completed W8R1 this afternoon.

As usual I kept it slow & steady and it was fine - but I was so glad when I realised that I wasn't going to have to do a sprint for the last minute!

Only five runs left now. I felt a bit emotional afterwards when I realised something had changed for me mentally. I now know it isn't IF I graduate, but WHEN I graduate, and that is a very powerful feeling. So happy!

Well done!! I know what you mean....I've spent this plan wondering if I'll complete it....I'm planning to do W8 R3 today and feel amazing that I'm so close to graduating....I can't wait!


Well done, I'm at the same place and can't believe I've come this far. I still find the runs quite difficult but I seem to have found a determination I didn't know I had.
