Woo! w9 r1 done

After a disastrous w8 r3, I really wasn't looking forward to tonights w9r1. But to my surprise it went really well.

Can't quite believe I've nearly finished C25K. Week 1 was so hard at the time. But now with the help and encouragement of Laura and everyone on this forum, I can run for a full 30 minutes. OK I haven't managed to run for 5km yet but I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

That's so good! Really don't worry about the 5k until you feel comfortable with 30 mins, and don't be surprised if it takes you over 30 mins for the foreseeable future. I graduated in october and have only ever managed it in 35 mins and that was a very good day! Really its the next step up after achieving 30 minutes for most people!

It's fabulous you've come so far, give yourself a pat on the back :)


Don't worry about the 5K, 30 minutes is fantastic. Only 2 runs left!!! :D
