Couch to 5K

Did it ! Did it!

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 further🍾😄😄

Keep going! It doesn't have to be far, it doesn't have to be fast. Also be more active in general. I walk everywhere these days, as well as running of course. I combine running with shopping too 😀

Me too we have two black Labradors so we walk them twice a day or more and then I run . And like yourself I walk most places although I work in a different county to where I live so I have to drive,there😄😄

Thank you Shorty7 yes it's a great feeling ,especially as I live in the sticks and some of the run entails inclines so starting to master them now and there were times I thought that perhaps I wouldn't be able to do it but I did !😄😄

Yeay Graduate!

That badge looks amazing on you...:)

So, get your party frock on for later, we will all be there.. balloons at the ready, party poppers, champagne... and even a band!!!

You have done so very well, and you will keep posting...( that was not a request) ! Choose where you want to travel next on your running journey, but take some time to run, just because you can, for how long, or how far you feel like:) I called it running for joy!

Then, when you are ready...loads of advice and ideas await you right here!

Congratulations!!!x
