Woohoo graduated!!!!

Did week 9 run3 this morning!

Was determined I would cover 5k, knew I wouldn't run it all but still wanted to cover the 5k distance before I graduated:-)

So today I got 3 personal PB's

Running time 42:34 PB

Running distance 3.35 km PB

Total distance including warmup and cool down 5.78km PB

I am so stoked, completed the c25k plan, ran for more than the 30 minutes and covered the 5k - woohoo I'm so happy!!!!!!!!!

πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ big cheesy grin on face πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Yay I'm a runnerπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • Thanks, I was so pleased at getting PB's on my Graduation run :-)

  • Well done. 😊

  • Thanks :-)

  • Absolute Star! I've loved watching your progress over the weeks

    You ARE a runner. πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  • Thanks Kas, as I enjoyed watching your progress :-) Wow how great is it, we are both runners! woohoo!!!!

  • Well done you, you should feel proud of yourself!! I on the other hand have well and truly falling of the waggon, I've not ran for 3 wks (shame on me) and can't motivate myself to put my trainers on, so that is why I came back on here to try and get some motivation and seeing your post has motivated me - I will put my trainers on and graduate haha - Well done again x

  • Thanks, and I'm glad I've inspired you to put on your running shoes :-) You will feel so pleased afterwards :-) Hope you have an epic run, please keep us posted :-)

  • Go on pojboj - you can do it! :)

  • Congratulations!! Be proud of all the work you put in - it's been a long and transformational journey since W1R1 :)

  • Thanks, :-) Yes it has sooooo much!!!!

  • Well done! Go get your cyber graduation badge and wear it with pride!

  • Thanks :-) yeah can't wait to see graduate by my name :-)

  • It looks great doesn't it! :)

  • Hey well done graduate!!! Youre an inspiration :-) what will you do next? Have you found any other running apps?

  • Thanks :-) I'm over the moon still :-)

    I think my plan is to do the following

    1 run - 30 minutes using week 9 podcast ( not sure if I'm ready to run without Laura lol)

    1 run - 20 minutes - week 1 podcast but instead of run/walk I'll do faster run/ jog

    1 run - distance run = last longest run plus 0.5k

    I think that should improve my speed and distance:-) then when I'm at 4.5 or 5k I'm going to do a park run :-). Then maybe aim for 10 k early next year and hm by end of next year. Maybe.....not unattainable:-)

    You will soon be graduating yourself :-) do you know what you will do?

  • That is a good plan. We have now done a couple of parkruns - addicted! :)

  • Yay Lainey !

    Many Many Congratulations to you on your Graduation !

    Well done ! :-) xxx

  • Thanks πŸ˜€ so happy :-)

  • Very well done - there is such a sense of achievement when you do it isn't there - to be able to step back and say "I just did 5k!" Definitely a woo hoo moment - congratulations and keep up the good work.

  • Well done, that's brilliant! Really encouraging to hear all your achievements. Keep up the good work! 😊😊
