Graduated - Yaaaayyyy!

I graduated at the weekend with run 3 of week 9 but felt like I properly graduated last night when I did 5k on the treadmill (38 mins). I haven't posted before, but have read many of your posts throughout the 9 weeks and they really have kept me going in the cold, dark and wet weather conditions of South Wales - thank you all :-).

I want to try the C25k+ podcasts now, but am having trouble downloading them onto my android phone - has anyone else experienced this? I tap to download but my phone doesn't do anything. Also, are they much more difficult than the 9 week prog or quite a comfortable transition?

Thanks again, so proud of myself!!

Fantastic achievement! Great time too. Sorry can't help you with the download problem. Have tried the speed podcast but didn't like it. I've done my own thing since graduation and mixed up all my runs (speed/stamina). But there are folks on here who can advise on all the graduate podcasts. You are right to be proud!

Thanks everyone. Yup, I think mixing it up is going to be the way to go. Not sure if I could do 5k in 38 mins in the outside, real world where I normally run, but managing it on the treadmill has given me a boost to mix it up a bit. Onwards and upwards (but just at a slight incline to begin with...).
