Week 9 day 3 - oh yeah!

So that's it - graduation run completed.

Now I just need to spend a long weekend with my new favourite friends - a foam roller and a bag of ice!

Seriously though, thanks everyone for contributing to this forum and to replying to my posts - I couldn't have done it without you!

Thanks all, and if you don't mind, yay for me :-).

Off to get my lovely graduation badge!

  • Well done Yatesco. 3 weeks and I'll be joining you.

    And enjoy your birthday weekend!

  • I think consolidation for a few weeks then I might look at the bridge to 10K? My 30 minute run is (only) 3.7-3.9K so I might spend a month or two increasing speed to 5K first.

    Oh, the options :-).

  • Yes, I know what you mean! Two months after graduation and I still feel there is so much still to try!

  • well done!! Love that shiny new badge!

  • Fantastic effort!  Such a great feeling to graduate, also a little scary too I remember but keep regular running days and build slowly towards any goals and listen to your legs along the way!! 😀

  • There you are..Graduate 🙂

  • Unfortunately my wife has a dodgy ankle from a childhood incident so running isn't an option for her. It isn't obvious - I only found this out when I asked about c25k!

  • Huge well done 'Graduate'......Hope you're celebrating :) :) :)
