Good morning all !. Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather. Well I have managed to complete the C25K. It has taken me a couple of weeks longer than 9 weeks but hey I've done it so I am so chuffed.

Thank you all who gave your support,encouragement and laughs along the way. You are really a great bunch so thank you! I hope that I can still keep in touch.

I shall keep running and now that there is structure to my running I shall carry on the way I have been doing improve on my speed ,although I think this morning and the other morning I felt my speed was in fact getting faster! and go furtherπŸΎπŸ˜„πŸ˜„
