It's official- I'm a graduate! That was a horrible graduation run; far too hot and feeling a bit sick towards the middle, but a tiny walk and I was off again.

Can't believe I've actually finished it! I know everyone says it, but I never thought I could run like this... Ever. Its amazing! Laura has been a good friend, a slave driver, and a cruel mistress. But she (and you guys!) have started me on something amazing, and I can't wait to see where I go from here!

Couldn't have done it without you!

  • Well done Beth. That is FABULOUS!! What are your future run plans? Are you going to repeat Week 9 for a couple of weeks, or go SOLO and just run 5K of your chosen route?

  • Congratulations Beth claim your graduation badge with pride. It feels amazing to get to the end of week 9 doesn't it?

    The journey begins now. Happy running.

  • Thanks lovelies! Just waiting on my graduate badge now! In terms of future plans, I have quite a few! Firstly, I'm going solo, but maybe a few more 30 minute runs, just until they get a bit easier and maybe faster. Then, I'm on just shy of 4k at the moment, and a bit of a slow coach, so I'm thinking of forgetting time limits, and just slowly upping my distance to 5k, then trying to get that within 30 mins.

    I reckon that, interspersed with a few hippy-dippy, music-free, garmin-free runs (good for the soul..) should keep me good for a while!

  • Well done Beth, that's fantastic! Enjoy your running x
