Couch to 5K

Graduate!

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!
