W9 R3 - Feeling great!

This morning I completed the programme and felt so good. Like everyone else who can now run 30 mins, I just can't believe that I have been able to do it. My friends have all been amazed that I have stuck with it. The encouragement and support that everyone on this forum gives has really helped me. Although I haven't written much, I read entries that others have made and feel inspired. So, thank you.

I haven't quite managed 5K, but that is the next challenge, then Parkruns, then 10k, then a HM............. Anything is possible!

I didn't tell any of my friends when I started. I came across this message board & it encouraged me so much. I finally went public this weekend when I did a 5km charity run. I felt such a massive sense of achievement even though I was really slow. I'm doing a 10k programme now which is pretty challenging but I love the routine and the progression. Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would have got this far when I was staggering round the park trying to run for 1 minute!

Thank you. I'm not doing a 10k programme just yet. I'm going to see how I get on with the C25k+ first. I was directed to it at the end of the C25k programme. Tomorrow will be my first run after completing the programme - I'm not quite sure what to expect!
