Yay, I did it!!

I finally graduated on the C25K....can't believe I did it and how much I enjoyed it. I have Mapmyrun playing in the background whilst listening to the C25K programme so I know how far I've run. I ran 4K in the 30mins but kept going as I wanted to run 5K and I felt fine, so I ended up running 5.2K in 39mins. I'm not sure if this is a good pace or not, all I know is it was good for me and I was more than happy. Thanks to everyone of this forum for all the advice, tips and progress they post, it has helped no end

  • Well done on completing c25k and running 5km, feels good doesn't it. I did 5.2km today too, 11 days after graduating, 38 mins and at a pace I am comfortable with at the moment. Keep on running!

  • Thank You, and well done to you too. I have downloaded the 5K+ Stepping Stone and thought I would give that a go now. I'm happy at my pace, just wanted to see if I could improve on my technique and stamina now. Hope you keep enjoying your running.

  • Congratulations! :)

  • Thanks so much

  • I'll never be guilty of that - I am enjoying it though and feel so much better since I started the programme

  • Woohoo! Well done on completing C25K and running just over 5K. Don't worry too much about the time for now. You have set yourself a benchmark and if you want to you can challenge yourself to beat it in due course. Happy running!

  • Well done! Keep running.... πŸ˜€

  • Thank you and yes I intend to. I did a Stepping stone 1st run yesterday and improved my speed but I feel I need a couple of days rest now, then I'll go out again. Enjoy your running too
