Eagerly awaiting week 9

I am due to complete week 8 this week and then it's onto the big one.

I will be reading as many week 9 posts between now and the end of next week, when I will have completed the C25K!

This is a big milestone for me as I never complete anything. Even though it's been slow going, I can slowly feel the stamina and am now eagerly awaiting the next 4 runs.

Any advice, encouragement or positive words would really spur me on.

I also appreciate all the tips given on here.

  • Good Luck - keep us updated on your progress and your all important graduation post.

  • Nothing to stop you now..you will soon be on the podium. If you want to take an extra rest day now the runs are longer thats fine.

    Keep going...look forward to hearing your celebrations.😊

  • You are going to feel so brilliant next week! You should feel rightly proud of your achievement so far. See you at the podium πŸ‘ŠπŸƒπŸΎπŸ†

  • It's well over 18mths since I graduated but I still remember the excitement of graduating! The next couple of weeks will gradually consolidate the fitness you will have built up over the course of the programme. Just remember to keep going steadily, believe in the programme and yourself and you will soon be there! Good luck!πŸ™‚

  • Slow and steady... the badge is waiting:)

    Just have confidence in the programme and mainly have faith in yourself :) You can do this... just look how far you have come:)

  • My advice for W9 is to set up the conditions for your graduation run as carefully as possible, so that it is memorable for all the right reasons. Impatient to finish, I ran mine on a Friday evening after a heavy week at work, when I am normally a morning runner........after the other W9 runs being great, R3 turned into a hard slog.......and I wished I had waited.

    Well done on (very nearly) finishing something...........but actually you are just starting.

  • I've just completed my first run for week 9. I have a cold, but the weather was good and I decided not to let a runny nose stop me. I completed that run without any problems. I'm just looking forward to the next two runs.
