I’ve done it! Thanks to this fantastic programme!!
I would never have believed it back in January, when I first stumbled on to this programme. It probably took me longer to actually make a start on the than to do it. Absolutely chuffed to haved completed W9R3!
The rest sounds like an Oscar acceptance speech so please feel free to stop reading now!
Time to complete the programme: 10 weeks and 2 days
Last run stats (for those that like stats) :
Worst run? Any run in week 7! Whilst I was elated to discover I could run 20 minutes… then 25 minutes, I truly did not believe I could sustain this level of activity.
Best run? W5R3 of course! But also W8R2 when I realised I could actually do this thing and the biggest suprise! It could even be fun!!!
Best advice received? G...O S…..L…..O…..W. I slowed down considerably to get through the longer runs and as a result managed to complete the programme, mostly kept up my enthusiasm and sustained no injuries
Second best advice received: Stop fretting and try and enjoy it!
Best advice I can offer: Run to your own music (sorry Laura)
Weight loss: Nada
Thanks go to … all the lovely people I’ve chatted to, shared their trials and triumphs and who have given me endless support and encouragement (as well as the odd pep talk and gentle boot up the backside), praised my achievements, ‘ran’ with me on parts of the programme and cheered me on to the finish line.
Also thanks to all the past posters, because there is an absolute treasure trove of historical posts: full of information and insights.
…. and finally a big thanks to the administrators that moderate this board and keep it a friendly and safe place.
Blows nose, accepts flowers, wipes tears……. And onwards with the adventure !! See you on the other side of the shiny badge xx
