An amazing morning....😀

An amazing morning....😀

I am astounded!! To all newbies & folk struggling on various weeks just like i did Honest!! Week 6 was a real struggle!! Well this morning my pal suggested we go for an aerly morning walk & she is fit so it was a brisk walk!! But i kept up & we did 3.1 miles😊Lovely crisp morning frosty har but nice! Felt great when finished so i thought will i try my week9 run 2 as felt ok!! So as we say took the bull by the horns & off i went! 😀 Thought it will be slower but thats ok keep going!! All my forum friends with me... just 10mins to go.. then 5 .. the hardest but i did it!!!! O so chuffed 2.2 mls and fastest time! Wish I understood how that was😀😀😀 accepted nit going to do 5k in 30 mins but thats ok!! That will be next challange ive decided!!! So everyone out there lee337, curlyann, running geek, oldfloss, mcfitty, BIG THANKS 1 mote run to go😀😀 to all the doubters this programme works keep going no matter how slow if i can do it anyone can!! Probably sleep rest of day 😂😂& might take 2 days rest before final run. Yahoo!!!!!! Phyllis x

Well done! Nearly there now ☺ I think going for a run post walk is a good idea. I do it often. I walk the dog and then while he kips I get my daps on and head out while still flexed and warmed up from the walk. It makes sense ☺

Good luck with the next one 😊

Excellent stuff Pc59! :)

Sounds like you've had a very productive day today! Nice one. I hope you are not going to overdo things though. You don't want to pick up an injury at this stage. Anyway, that certainly gives the rest of us plenty of motivation so thanks for that. You're graduation is almost upon you now. Well done! :) x

I am 59 next month but not dreading it at all now that I am much slimmer and healthier, thanks to a combo of c25k, Weightwatchers and my neighbour's dog 😊 He is here with me now, 7 years on from our first walk together. We have just been out into the blue ☺

I'm doing slimming world & c25k & so far lost10.5lbs like the running slow but steady😂😂 I'd love a dog but still work full time so maybe that will be a retirement plan!! 2 darling grandchildren keep me going though! Plus since c25k feeling a lot better & confidence slowly coming back!! We will do it miss wobble😊Phyllis x
