Omg.......week 9 run 3. I've only gone and done it

I am so pleased with myself. 9 weeks ago I thought I'd die after 60 seconds of running and today I ran for 35 mins. I carried on going once the warm down kicked in because I just had it in me. Ran nearly 5k and My gob is well and truly smacked. The weather was so much kinder to me. Nice breeze and cloudy. Thank you c25k and to Laura and also to you lot because it's such a lovely forum and everyone is so encouraging. Especially when you have a bad run. I felt everyone cheering me on near the end. Onwards and upwards. The running world is my oyster. Also got a friend of mine to try it. I really believe if you listen to what Laura says you CAN'T FAIL

  • Yippee ! Hooray ! and Well Done !!

  • How do I get my badge

  • Hey, congratulations on graduating AND on nearly making the magical 5k too. Well done -*cyber pat on the back heading your way* x

  • Well done and congratulations!! It is a wonderful feeling isn't it! If you click on the pinned post titles graduation badge on right hand side of page and ask for your badge they will sort it out for you. Good luck with your future running :)

  • Well done, Chappamaddog! You certainly did do it. Congratulations on a jog well done.

    We can feel a bit flat at the end. I did a little bit even though I have a 10k race planned and so the C25k+ podcasts do offer a little bit of security and reassurance with all the familiarity of Laura.

    There are apps as well that will take you to 10k and there is Edomondo where you can set goals and use your own music.

    Again, well done xxx
