YIPPEE KAYAY - I DID IT!!

YIPPEE KAYAY - I DID IT!!

I actually did it!! I just completed the final run of the programme!! 😱😁

When I started this on 6 Feb with my husband, it was cold, dark and wet and I was shattered!!! I could never imagine running (albeit slowly) continuously for 30 minutes!! He dibbed out after week 2 & I really thought I wouldnt be far behind him but, I carried on & I think Im now addicted!!

My last run wasnt my best by any means (& I forgot to turn my watch off at the end so I dont know my pace/distance etc!!), it was early (5am!!), cold, something happened to my app so it looked different, all my data has been wiped & I couldnt play any music! The gremlins came in hard & fast at 15 mins but, somehow, I did it!!

Finding this place & all you was a BIG plus for me so - thank you all, thank you for your support, for your tips, for sharing your experiences, for helping me keep on!! ❤️

I DID IT!!!! (Sorry, a tad excited!!) 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️

Congratulations. I can't wait to post in similar vain. Only the final run to do, which I'm intending to be a parkrun on Saturday. I think pure stubbornness has got me through, and sticking to the programme, but now I can't wait to experiment and find out what suits me best (I suspect it will be intervals - I do better with a walking break!). Well done again, and keep running 😀
