I've done it!!!!!

I've done it!!!!!

Today was the best run ever! I don't know if it was because it was the final run and I was really psyched up for it but everything felt right and fluid - that's the best word to describe how it felt. The past year has been particularly tough with our daughter diagnosed with breast cancer; she's now in remission, thankfully. Undertaking C25K has saved me from total meltdown and given me a focus, the challenge I needed to deal with everything life threw at our family. Anyway, I would like to thank my husband, my family, and everyone on this forum for their fantastic support and encouragement; I honestly couldn't have done it without you! Finally, thanks to my trusty trainers and sports bra for never letting me down! Now celebrating with pizza and wine. Bliss! 😊

You'll get there and it is a great feeling - I'm still buzzing and that's not the wine! I'm going to work on my time and distance because I'm quite a way off 5k in 30 minutes. I ran 5k in about 50 minutes a couple of years ago but that was a moment of madness I think. So, I still have goals and the main one is running for the sheer fun of it. Enjoy your running! 😀

Well done, this running stuff does seem to be good for the old coping skills, you're right. One of my kids pointed out the other day that mummy doesn't shout so much anymore 😂 Glad to hear your daughter is in remission, enjoy your glory moment!
