I graduated this morning. It even rained on me (first time for everything - it was actually quite refreshing) but i kept going.
10 weeks ago (i had 1 week off for a cold) i struggled to run for 60 seconds.
This week i ran two 5kms for my last two runs. My first (wk9 r2) 35mins 15 and the second today (wk9 r3 - graduation run!) 34mins 35.
I really can't believe it. Cant wait for my graduation badge.
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone here for their encouragement - i didn't post much but just reading the site motivated me.
And to all those just starting or part way through it - keep going - if i can do it so can you.
Next stop park run. I've been talked in to running one next Saturday - unfortunately they are both proper runners - members of the Serpentine running club, marathon runners and even Iron man finishers! Something tells me I won't keep up with them. But who cares? For i am now also a runner.....
