I'm a graduate again

I've graduated in turkey , yesterday on a very lovely ( but warm) morning . A cruise ship was coming in with the mountains as a back drop . Wouldn't stop to take a pic lol but u get the picture , but here's one of me , I asked a Turkish lad to take it ha ha I was as high as a kite . So happy to be getting back into it again , this was yesterday I'm back in soggy u.k now .

Congratulations Rockette. Sounds like a great run. Don't go mad now, take it steady - don't want any more injuries.

Woohoo Rockette!!! Well done mate! A lovely place must have helped though ey. No soggy old England for you. It's been that wet hereabouts mate it's just so annoying. I've not been dry for days. Got the dog in tow and my clothes aren't drying from one walk to the next. Grrr

I should stay indoors a bit til you get acclimitised. You might have to dig out your winter jumpers! I was out this morning with a jumper on with a fleece over that and then my waterproof. Tsk

YAY! What an incredible journey ROCKETTE! From graduation - to injury - to being down in the dumps - to getting better - to starting again - TO GRADUATING IN BLOOMIN' TURKEY!!!! What an inspiration you are to all newbies on here who get down in the dumps about stuff and wonder if they'll ever do this program. You have proved that you can do it TWICE!

Hooray! And welcome home.

I missed this post but just wanted to add my congratulations and to say you give me hope! I am still out of the game and that's been 9 weeks now. Breathing still not great but I am working on the IT bands. I plan to do the programme again as soon as I am able ( if I go really slow then the breathing might hold up) so it's great to hear you've done it. So pleased for you. X

Thanks Lizziebeth . It's horrible when your on the sideline , but I'm sure you won't be long hopefully before your back out there . I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you . When you do restart , take it nice & steady & before you know it you will have graduated again . Take care & all the best .
