I'm absolutely over the moon to say I have completed the last run of week 9 and c25k! I went out tonight at 3:45 drove to the usual spot and realised I'd forgotten my earphones. Not fancying running just listening to my breathing I went back home to get them. It was starting to come in dark when I got back but there was no way I was putting this off for another day so off I set and completed the run slow and steady. I have no idea how far I ran as I also forgot my pedometer but it was about the same as last time.
I can't quite believe that just a few weeks ago I was really struggling to run for 60 seconds at a time and now I can run quite comfortably for 30 minutes (although the first five minutes is still the hardest). I'm chuffed to bits I'm a graduate lol!
Stumbling across the c25k programme and this forum has been the best thing I've done in a long time. Suffering from depression for quite a few years, it has really boosted my confidence in myself and I feel so much better.
Thank you to everyone who advised me, encouraged me and supported me (trying to keep up with lee337 and africanali too lol) you've all been fab and I couldn't have done it without you guys and this forum!
