Week 9 Run 3 completed!!!!!! I can't quite believe it!

Wow. Is all I can say. I've just run week 9 Run 3 and I did it! I'm in shock! And shattered!  And my exclamation usage is through the roof!!!!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the support and encouragement and tips that kept me going. After my hell on earth week 7 and the tears that flowed I never dreamed I'd get to a stage I could run for 30 minutes. 

Still have only done one 5K but I don't care...I'll keep running and increasing slowly til I can run 5K each time. I'm at 4.25km so not far to go. 

Today was tough, very warm, my husband said think if you can run in this heat think how easy you'll find it when conditions are favourable. Felt very sick afterwards.  

I've lost inches, 20lbs (more to lose though),  my knees and legs much stronger. My IBS has improved immensely and my thyroid meds optimal.  I feel great. Fantastic and very proud 😀

It may be the end of C25K but certainly not the end of my running hobby... Onwards and upwards!

Indeed, to continue the 30 mins for a few weeks and hope to make that 5K mark.  I was also looking at Park runs and I have a few local ones to choose from. I also crazily entered the ballot for next years London marathon... I don't know what possessed me!
