Another one for the 'done it' list!

Just completed run 3 of week 9. I know they bill it as couch to 5k in 9 weeks - well, for me it's been couch to 3.7k in 11 weeks but I'm still beaming with pride! Already have my next goal picked out - want to run 5k even if it takes me 40 mins plus - pretty sure I'll be able to do it if I take it steady. Have organised my own playlist and although I'll miss Laura, I won't miss the podcast music! Once I've done 5k I'm going to do the speed podcast till I can get my 5k time down. Then I'm thinking of a park run.... Whoever said graduating is only the beginning is spot on! Thanks to everyone for the support. I'm afraid I'm a rubbish poster - mostly only post when I want advice or a pat on the back - it's all me, me, me I'm afraid! Happy running everyone.

  • And here's a well deserved pat on the back!

    Congratulations - yay!!!!!

    Now go and get your shiny badge :-)

    I think it took me about 3 weeks after graduation to run 5k - no rush, just enjoy

    :-) :-) x

  • It's the 'Stride of Pride' for Saffi. Many, many congratulations. It is a great achievement.

    Don't 'think of a park run'. Register today and go Saturday! You'll love it, and will find that the atmosphere carries you through to 5km.

  • That's fantastic, well done. Its good that you have goals to work towards and its amazing how you see improvements over the weeks. I agree with MarkyD, go for parkrun, they are brilliant! Enjoy your running x :-)

  • Woohoo! Congratulations! You deserve every pat on the back and more for what you've accomplished. Isn't it the most wonderful feeling? Enjoy your new beginning and happy trails on your future runs!

  • Congratulations on your graduation and completing your c25k. It's a fantastic achievement :)

  • Very well done saffi. Next stop Parkrun? ;)

  • Congratulations and good luck with the 5k. Slow and steady is the name of the game

  • Congratulations! That's brilliant progress. A friend of mine recently finished the podcasts and I know it took her longer than the 9 weeks as well. The important thing is you made it to the end.

  • Congratulations! I hope you feel very proud of yourself.

  • Congratulations! I look forward to hearing about your future achievements.

  • Congrats on finishing the programme! I'm a couple of runs behind you, but I've already come to the same conclusions and set the same goals, so please keep us posted!

  • You've got really good post graduation goals . Well done on being able to do the 30 mins, a great achievement.
