I graduated today! After 13 weeks I finally completed the final run of week 9. What a challenge it has been. When I started back at the end of April, it was hard work and quite warm, and today it was hard work and a hot Spanish morning. My most enjoyable runs were in the UK during the past couple of weeks whilst on holiday. When I started this programme, my aim was to improve my general fitness so that I wouldn't get out of breath walking up hills. I have just spent a week in the Derbyshire Peak District and managed the hill walking without gasping for air so it was worth every bit of the journey. Now that I can run for 30 minutes, my next goal is to run 5K as I am currently doing just over 4k in 30 minutes, and hopefully to lose weight and tone up in the process. What a great training programme this couch to 5K is!!
