The grand finale😊😊😊!!

Yahoo made it!!!!! It's a strange feeling chuffed to have completed the c25k but sad too as I have loved the structure of the programme so downloaded c25k + to help me get to 5k. Ran for 35mins but only reached 3.77km was keen to make 4k but it was a bit windy & took a different route that had a few more inclines in it . Silly me!! But getting dark now so wanted to stick to where street lights were. Let's hope I can now keep going & one day make the 5k😊😊😊!! Everybody keep on running..🏃🏃🏃its a fantastic programme that works!! And trust me if I can run for 30mins anyone can😂😂😂Phyllis x thanks to everyone for their support & encouragement 😊it got me to the end😊😊x

Well done! And although the inclines might have meant you did a shorter distance or were slower, they're an important part of running too so it's great that you were doing them

That's amazing and you are another one who gives us newbies on here the inspiration we need to continue on with the plan. You should be very proud of yourself for what you've achieved as you deserve it. Well done! :) x

Not daft at all. As someone pointed out to me recently those that do are far fewer than those that don't! Congratulations by the way. I'm still amazed that I can do it (I sailed through the challenge and then had a few mishaps bought on my not stretching properly and a bit of cockiness...). This is my first week in a while that I might actually get three runs in. My cousin - who has run marathons for years - said it was life changing when I told him I'd started running and he's right. Enjoy your first post - grad run: it's a special one. All the best.

Fantastic news Pc59. Well done! You're in the graduate club. I graduated last Saturday. Went out on Monday with the C25k+ broadcasts. Did the first one where Laura counts out the beat that gets progressly faster. I found it a little odd tbh but stuck with it and did it keeping up with the increasing pace. I will stick with it to try and increase my pace/distance as I too am incredibly slow. I wanted some structure in these early days. Give it a go and see how you get on. 😀😀😀😀.

Congratulations Phyllis and early well done. You're a graduate now - woo hoo! That's awesome; you've every right to feel chuffed. :-) Go girl! I'm just starting W9 so all being well will hopefully graduate next Monday. There's quite a little group of new/almost graduates now - hope we can encourage each other in our post C25K life - for me I think structure is the key. Anyway, big hugs and congratulations again!

Ah thanks Carol yes we all need to keep in touch & keep ourselves motivated as I think this will be the hard bit keeping it going! O it's so exciting you are nearly there!!
