Feeling proud

I have just done run one of week 7. I found it Ok and even managed to up my pace for the last 60 seconds. I run on a treadmill as my joints are not that good, but I don't think there are too many 58 year old grandma's out there who can manage 25 minutes running. I am so proud of myself but would not have been able to do it without the C25K. I cannot wait to graduate, hopefully before our 40th wedding anniversary in April.

  • Great stuff! Well done

    Good luck with your remaining runs

  • Well done, that's fantastic. I am on exactly the same run as you. Reading other people's posts, it sounds like it just gets better, too.

  • You should feel rightfully proud. It's nothing to do with age and everything to do with attitude and desire. Well done you!

  • Fabulous, well done :)

  • You should feel very proud ! That really is an achievement and you're right there's not many 58 grandmas who can do that..Go you !

  • Yay ! Well done , brilliant achievement ! :-) xxx

  • Well done IWDI not long now. Slow and steady and then try running on grass at a park it really is brilliant

  • Well done you. It's great that us mature folks are doing this program. Keep going, you'll soon be a graduate. Cheers, Mel, ( 64yrs )

  • It sounds like you will graduate very soon. It's a really good programme that seems to work for everyone. Well done.

  • Like you, I'm on wk 7 and doing c25k indoors - suits me and you're right it's all a real boost, isn't it? We'll be graduates very soon now. I'm so impressed by everything C25K , it really works. Sincere thanks to all who post such positive and helpful messages

  • Like you, I am on week 7 and run indoors on my treadmill, and upped the pace for the last 60 seconds. It was so weird reading your post as I thought that is me, only difference is you have 10 years on me. So I take my hat off to you and look forward to hearing that you graduate before that anniversary as you deserve it x
