W9R3 - Done, done, done!!!


A lovely sunny Sunday afternoon saw me pounding the highways and byways with Laura for the final run of week 9. It was a lovely way to finish what has been an eventful 10 months or so. I was feeling so good, that I pushed on for another 3 minutes and completed 5k!!

What next? Well, Milton Keynes parkruns are on Saturday morning, so they might have to be part of my new regime. Anyone else doing them?

I think I'll save pushing on to 10k for the Spring.

TTFN & thanks to all.

  • Well that's absolutely brilliant! Big fanfare - ta daaaaaa! Well done. I'm going for a bit of consolidation now. Nothing rash for me!

  • Aw, shucks, thanks!

    I agree, a bit of consolidation is now in order, especially as Autumn has finally arrived and the mornings are that much darker. I think I'll try out a couple of new routes that I've looked into that avoid the worst of the mud that will be the inevitable consequence of today's rain!

  • Fantastic, well done for graduating. I recommend parkrun, they are great, and I have found it gives me a goal each week. Great for socialising too! Go for it ;-D

  • Thanks! I wanted to get through to the end before embarking on parkruns, as I wasn't sure I could cope with a full 5k. Having done it yesterday I'm raring to go!

  • Well done you! Sounds like you've had a hell of a few months, but you've done it! Enjoy the feeling, bask in the glory and love those parkruns!

  • Thanks, Babs.

  • Wow, finishing in style with a 5 k run, seriously impressed!!!! Well done & congratulations, hope you had a little celebration to mark the occasion x

  • :-) Fish & chips and chocolate ice cream!

  • Well done ETO!!!!! Great stuff. You must be mightily relieved that's now done and dusted.

    Yes, 10 k next. You could download Laura's Stepping Stones podcasts and the Bridge to 10 k ones with Sami Murphy. Parkrun is a great idea!

  • Thanks!! Not sure my wife would appreciate me spending more time with Laura, though...

  • Yeh congratulations and a 5k. Sounds like a few of us are considering park runs

  • Congrats to you too! Sub 35 mins for a full 5k is pretty darn good. Graduation for you later this week?

  • Congratulations! Well done you :)

  • Thanks Tomas!

  • Well done ! Your optimism has paid off and YOU CAN DO IT !!

  • Thanks! My optimism has been sorely tested over the past few months.

  • Just logged back in (lunchtime at work) and seeing the little "graduate" badge next to my is making me grin for ear to ear!

  • Great news well done :) congrats on the 5k too !

  • Congratulations! I hope you feel amazing!

  • Congratulations deforestation try a parkrun, I've not tried one yet but only because I will have to wake early to travel to one. Iike my sleep :)

  • I am glad the badge raises a smile after all this time. Many congratulations for optimism and tenacity and achievement plus good luck with your future running.

    Keep running, keep smiling.
