w9r3 complete!

Well I've done it completed w9r3 today in the rain. 

What I have learnt:-

The advice, support, and encouragement from the forum is brilliant. 

Go slow, and if in doubt slower. 

Focus on the time, and forget the distance and speed.(but did i really run that far?)

What next:-

Keep running 3 times a week for 30 minutes

Find out about strengthening exercises

And find new route, I've been going round and round same fields, need to go elsewhere, when flood water drops. 

Looking forward to running and getting home with dry feet. 

Thank you all for the support.

Well done! That's incredible! You've come so far. You should be very proud =] I like your little list of things to do next - I think keeping a structure and giving yourself little targets is very important to keeping us motivated. Well done on graduating once again!! =]

Congratulations! Very well done. I did my graduation run on Sunday - feels good doesn't it! I tried the Stepping Stones NHS podcast this morning - but not sure about the music!
