Couch to 5K

What a beautiful day to graduate!

Well after just 9 weeks I have completed c25k this morning! I started out on this programme in the hope of giving my self some "me time"( I am a busy mum of 3) and get a bit fitter in the process! I started out somewhat tentatively not really believing that I would get to the end and I think I am in a bit of a state of shock that I have actually achieved my goal!! Thank you to everyone for the encouragement and support along the way you have all been fantastic!! For anyone just starting out on the programme, stick at it, it does work. If I can do this, trust me anyone can!!!! I'm now off to celebrate in the sunshine!! Happy Running everyone!!!! :)

Congrats runningmummy71: The weather was glorious and you were victorious! We both got badged today. I even found energy to do some gardening in the sunshine afterwards...Enjoy your day off tomorrow in even more sunshine and don't stop celebrating. We'll toast you tonight when Mr SJ takes me out for a slap-up celebratory dinner. Cheers!

Many Thanks Fitmo! You've given some very sound advice along the way not just to me, but to many others! Joined the father and sun quest to try and get my 5k time down to 30 mins ( might need some serious effort on my part). Will keep posting my progress. Best wishes, keep running!! :)

Da da da da, da DAAA ! That's me playing you a trumpet fanfare! What a lovely day to graduate on, all the clear blue skies and sunshine to boot. Keep posting as you keep on running! Hope your children are suitably in awe of the graduate in their midst....

Many thanks for your good wishes. My children are impressed unfortunately not enough to get up and join me! My eldest is 19 and it can be tricky to get her to move at all!!! Will keep posting, good luck with your running too :)
