Graduated Run -Wow I have Done It!!! What a Beauty!

I'm just fit to burst here!! Completed my last run this morning week 9 run 3 - so I have graduated. I cannot believe it!!! skipping around. Beautiful sunny morning, slightly cold which I loved. Still not managed to get to 5k in 30 minutes but it was couch to 4k for me!!! 2.5 miles in old money and at a pace of 12.32 minute mile. The snails came out to celebrate.:)

There was no way I wasn't going to do this run and it felt brilliant - I just want to say a huge thank you to all you lovely people who have motivated me during these past 37 runs!! I've had to take a bit longer as I stupidly sprained my ankle. I had a major wobble at week 8 but it was your lovely messages that made me go out and run stronger. I never used the app just cheesy tunes and its been fantastic

Wohoooo and well done everyone who has graduated and keep on running for those people still on the programme it works a treat.

Gosh I am just so happy!!
