W5R3 Completed 😁

Completed the 5th week tonight...never, ever thought I could have done itand had already decided that I would get to 10mins and see how I felt and have a 2min walk break if required. Surprisingly I didn't and kept at a steady pace. Before I knew it I was at 15 mins, then I had finished!!!

It was a tough one but I kept going and felt really great and amazed when I'd completed it!! I never actually thought I'd get this far on the programme to be honest!!! I've now signed up for Park runs and cannot wait to complete W9R3 during my first one 😁

  • Well done, sounds like you are doing well and great to have a goal post C25k and for that last run. Good luck.👍

  • Brilliant. Well done! You can definitely complete the programme. It's just a matter of keeping up the determination from here on in.

  • That's brilliant, congratulations! I think we should all sing a rousing chorus of "You did it" from My Fair Lady! (Google it if you're too young to remember....). :-)

  • Well done Lina - first of the big runs under your belt!

  • Well done you. Slow and steady...that's the way ,as everyone says. I can not believe that I am starting Week 9 on Tuesday.... I was thrilled when I was able to run for 90 seconds at the start of the programme!!!!

  • Well done you! It's a great achievement, revel in your glory - you deserve it. :)
