I have just completed my graduation run. The first km I really felt like a runner as I upped my pace. Had to slow it down though in order to run to the end instead of crawl. But I just feel great!
I ran past the park where I puffed those first 1 minute runs, wondering if I could actually run for even 5 minutes ( I had peeked at what was to come!). I was in my 20+ mins then and gave the park a wave. That gave me the boost to up the pace again. So all in all a great week.
I have been following all my fellow recent graduates and now feel inspired to further challenges - both running and not. My self belief has grown tremendously.
If you are just starting out on c25k and doubt that you can complete the course - just keep believing Laura and pushing onwards. The personal rewards are yours for the taking.
