W9R2 done - #nervous

Well. Tomorrow is the day I'll do W9R3 and I must say it feels a bit weird!

How have you all done after finishing the plan? I'm going away for the weekend so will be indulging in too much to eat & drink to celebrate lol but fully looking forward to the warm glow of knowing that I've done EVERY run and the satisfaction of a job done! I've cheated a bit (and by cheated I mean sometimes having done runs on consecutive days rather than religiously having a rest-day in-between) and I feel great for it!

Not sure what to concentrate on for my next week after coming back off hols. Try & run for longer and push myself to concentate on time running (eg try 35mins for 3 days, then 38 etc) or try & run quicker for 30mins than I have been so far.

How did you all feel when you"graduated"???? ;o)

Hey Cooombsy, you are within touching distance of the finishing line :-)

How did I feel when I graduated ? I felt like I had won the Champions League, the Boat Race, the Grand National, the Tour De France, Wimbledon etc., as you can probably gather , I felt AMAZING and so will you , Good Luck for tomorrow :-) xxx

How exciting! Your badge is waiting :-)

It feels great to know you did it, especially when at the beginning the later weeks looked terrifying.

Go for it...!

yep this the place to brag, coz we all get it, unlike family sometimes, ( you begin to notice a glazed look when once again you wax lyrical over running !! ) as for what comes next, well I seem to be faddling about,but think just running for 5k however long it takes is going to be what I end up doing, then increasing distance bit by bit as it gets easy, but you never know, I could change my mind !

Well, post graduation I am thinking of starting the program again .... but up hills!

Blimey. Hills are not my friend!!

Nor mine!

9 weeks ago I could not run downhill and now I can.... So why not try it uphill?

Good luck for w9r3 and your graduation. Why not spend a few weeks consolidating your achievements by running for 30mins each time whilst you decide what to do next.
