Wk9 run2 - done!

Can't believe I am one run away from graduation. At 61 I have never been sporty and certainly never stuck to anything like I have with this. It's brilliant, I love the sense of achievement (not to mention the stone in weight I have lost somewhere along the roadway) and looking forward to Saturday - my first parkrun and (hopefully) my graduation run.

  • Well done - on the running and the weight loss! Enjoy the park run and graduation! I am one run behind you - so will be cheering you on! I am trying to find a relatively flat Park run to do! We 61 year olds are doing great!

  • Thank you - it's a bit daunting doing a new unknown route and lots of other runners around but now I know I can run for 30 minutes I am just going to take my time and enjoy my graduation run. Let me know how yours goes too - 61 rocks!!

  • Absolutely! I am finding being 61 much more fun than 60!

  • Hey I did it!! Posted yesterday - it was a great day!! 😁👍

  • I'm the same age as you, graduated July 2015. I'd never really been sporty either, maybe ran a sprint at school sports day at age 7 and a few xc runs in high school, as made to, but found this new enjoyable excercise regime and a few weeks ago completed my goal for this year of running in a 10k race. Well, I didn't actually race it, just went round in my own time, without walking and did OK, won a medal! I'd recommend doing a 10k occasionally, or if the only one you ever do, it's a nice distance..😊

    Btw, my wife at 61graduated c25k back in May...
