W9R3 completed! I did it!

This morning I completed W9R3! I can still hardly believe I did it! When I think back to W1R1 when I was absolutely puffed out after every 1 minute interval. As many of you on this forum have said, this programme is truly fantastic.

Thanks for all the help along the way from you lovely people (as well as Laura and Julie of course). This is the first exercise programme I have ever completed in my life and it feels so good! Just saying "I can run 5k" feels a bit odd, but it's true! Now for the next challenge - keeping up the running and no backsliding!

How do I request a graduation badge?
