Graduated - Phew!! Thank you Hannah :-x

Graduated  - Phew!! Thank you Hannah :-x

Well, who would believe it? The old bird did it!

When I started C25K I never believed I would get to the end of it. I'm 64 and not the fittest of people. I've played a bit of social tennis but run? Never, I said. Can't see the point! Well, I've just eaten my words. I was all set to do what had become my usual 4k to finish off the programme but I was running with my daughter hannah141 who graduated last month. "How do you feel about carrying on to do 5?" she said. So I did and it felt amazing!

Although I haven't posted on the forum before, other than a comment for Hannah, I often see the messages from the Community and have often been spurred on by them so thank you everyone but especially, thank you Hannah!!

  • Thank you for all the lovely replies. Having had a day's rest, I went out again tonight, on my own, just to prove it wasn't a fluke - and it wasn't. I even knocked nearly 2 minutes off the time! I'm not sure how to request a graduation badge. Can some one point me in the right direction please?

  • I've only just recovered, major DOMS yesterday! Hip OK? x

  • Surprisingly, yes! Nowhere near as uncomfortable as Tuesday. Though the midge bite I picked up on the Tuesday run is killing!

  • Well done Laura. You look amazing. Keep going 😊

  • Yiiipppeeeee
