Graduated! Can't believe I've done it :)

It's taken me since January to achieve, but I've finally graduated - so proud of myself. I've taken it steady, repeated runs when I didn't feel ready to move on and have had a few weeks off here and there due to work commitments. However, despite being quite a sloth by nature and fairly overweight, I've always returned to the programme which is testament to how achievable Couch to 5k. Now I can run for 30 mins, I'm going to keep pushing on to increase my speed.

Thank you to everyone who posted words of encouragement when I felt like I was failing. Couldn't have done it without the support of this fabulous community. Xxx

  • Thank you. My dear departed Dad was an avid runner and I get a lovely feeling when I think how proud (and surprised!) he'd be to see me running; I managed to get to age 42 before I changed my 'I don't do running' mantra to 'I do running'! Thanks for the support now and along the way.
