OMG Graduated!!!!!!!wk9 r3 woohoo very loudly!!

Have to share that tonight I feel quite chuffed! Felt tired after a 10 hour shift, but went for a run with my son at 8:30 this evening. Had a fantastic 30 min run that went the most smooth it has ever been. We completed the couch to 5k !!! We can run 30 mins and did 5k. Never thought I would EVER be writing this post. I have never liked or been any good at exercise but tonight I can finally say "I am a runner!". My son was equally chuffed and we high fived the last few minutes walking home with big grins on our faces. I took the scenic route, but got here. I feel stronger, a little leaner and overall like I can conquer anything ( ok, not quite ANYthing)... WOOHOO! Thank you community for all your great posts that kept me going through the sore times, the bad run times and the feeling like I would never do it, times. I am here. Determination is all you need. Thank you 😘🏃🏼 c25kers xxxx

Congratulations on graduating!! 5k in 30 mins is great, I still can't do that!

Just had a run on the treadmill and its definitely not feeling natural at the moment. I hope it improves

Hay Anna, you found me😃. treadmill will probably just take a bit of time to feel natural maybe? I would imagine those who started on a treadmill would find street running a bit weird.... Let me know how you do on the park run🏃🏼😏 catch you soon.
