C25K Graduation! Yippee!

Hi - I did it!! Completed my last run W9R3 yesterday and I am still in shock! Running for 30 min non stop is a goal I thought was way out of my reach. I was def struggling week 7, 8 and was a nervous wreck about week 9 . The secret - I slowed down!! The podcast works - Laura was right all along. I am running a 'leg ' of the belfast marathon on monday and although I won't be running the complete leg I am confident I can give it a good bash! Thanks to everyone for continuing support, encouragement and a few giggles! To anyone finding it tough - hang in there and SLOW DOWN! What next? I will have a wee look at the NHS choices website and aim for another goal. Good luck every one else - keep it up x

Well done and many congratulations. You have put in the effort and now you reap the well deserved reward. Don't forget to ask for your badge. Good luck with your post-grad running - I'm going to have a try at Stepping Stones, Speed and Stamina as I like the structure of a podcast at the moment. Enjoy your own success - you earned it. Best wishes.
