1st December. I was determined that this morning WOULD be my 5k graduation run excluding the walkie bits. This was my Couch to 5k after all. I needed to do that. I only bloomin' well have! Yes it was tough again. Yes, I wondered if this would be my last run ever. Yes, I wanted to stop again at about 20 minutes but I didn't. When Laura said stop running I decided I'd keep going and run home. That way I'd be sure of covering the 5k so that's what I did! I'd done 5.17k in 34 minutes 6 seconds! I can't believe it! There was sadly no-one apart from Dudley Dog to greet me. Hubby is up North for the weekend, Son at work. I got 5 minutes of solid licking by means of congratulations from the dog Tearful phone calls followed though!
This has been an incredible journey. An achievement of mind over matter. Three of my friends have started since I have and are going great in their own ways. One thing is for sure; without the support of you guys on this forum I wouldn't have completed it. Fact. Thank you so much. You're all amazing and inspirational. I hope to share our 'post graduate' (man, I LOVE the sound of that!) highs and lows in the future. From me and Austin Powers, keep running and blessings to all. x
