C25K - WK 9 Run 3 Completed Today Woohooooo

azharalkindi profile image

I completed C25K this morning running at the beach. I started my run just before 5 am. The temperature was about 33 degrees and relatively humid. I was in such a rush to start and even forgot to do my usual 5 minutes stretches before the brisk walk. My heart monitor watch (Suunto Vector ) started playing again, readings were not constant. I don’t know if is it just with me? Had a good swim in the sea to cool. Finally I just can’t believe that I have actually made it. It was never easy to be committed to run until I found this programme. Very big thanks to Laura and the NHS and to all of you guys in this forum. Here I’m almost 4000 miles from the UK following your programme. This programme is just excellent, it worked perfectly. I have tried to run so many times before and simply couldn’t make it. For those of you who have not seen or read my first post ( My Story ) please take a moment to read it. I would like to show others that we can change our lives, regardless of our age or physical condition. Just believe in yourself, that you CAN obtain goals in life that may first seem impossible. If you tell yourself you can, you will. Stay focus and remain committed right to the end no matter how long it takes you, trust the programme will get you there. A nice big and healthy breakfast at the Crepe cafe was a good treat. Happy Running

Congratulations!! I envy you the option of taking a swim in the sea to cool down... the North Sea is wayyyyyy to cold for that at the moment.
