W9R2 - Only 1 More to Graduation

Day 1 was done in the pouring rain on Wednesday with the gym's running group - it was, er, um, Character Forming.

Despite that, I enjoyed this week's group, having told them not to wait for me and I just bumbled around at my speed, knowing the others weren't freezing to death waiting. (it also reduced my time doing the post-run training laps - phew)

This morning, I tackled W9R2 on my own on my favourite route, it felt a bit harder for some reason (I may be a bit tired, it has been a busy week), but I did it and I can hardly believe I just have one more run and I will have finished the C25K programme!

  • Congratulations - it only gets better from here :-)

  • Thanks, I will kind of miss the programme, but have downloaded more apps to keep me going post C25K!

  • You're very brave running in a group already, I admire your tactics for dodging the training laps, ha ha. Have a good rest so you can relax and enjoy your graduation run, you only get to graduate once and everyone remembers it, in much the same way as we all remember W5R3.

  • Thanks - the running group was kind of meant to be for beginners, but I seem to be the most beginnery!

    Ahhh, W5R3, I remember you well..

  • Soon you'll have even less to lose. Well done you - brilliant!

  • Heh,heh, JaySee, I hope so - and thanks!

  • Slow, steady, nearly there... Well done. ! Character forming.. i like that! :)

    I will try and hold that thought, when next, I am getting soaked :)

  • Thanks, my character is well and truly formed and at least I need never fear rain again!

  • Then, many of us in the UK on this forum, have that accolade also!

    I got initiated also, on one of my runs...by a white van man who tried, quite literally to drown me! :) ( My post of several months back, Soggy but unbowed! ) So I think that counts as double character forming :)

  • Oh karma will get him, I am sure! And yes, double character forming!

  • Enjoy your graduation run , make sure you reward yourself with something good ☺

  • Thank you, I am very excited - a celebratory meal out may be in order!

  • Aw this is brilliant ! Yes you must celebrate in style you have earned it !

    Great post and all the very best for the Biggie ! :-) xxx
