I did it, really did it! Programme completed today 😊

Have just finished my last run! Can't believe I'm actually writing this, 35 minutes running without stopping and am so chuffed I feel weepy 😊. I did get a stitch at about 25 mins (any tips on how to avoid/get past this appreciated) so it was pretty slow, but still, I did it!

Thank you for so many supportive messages - especially in week 6 where I struggled most.

Now, how to keep the motivation levels up..... maybe signing up for a park run 🏃. Will definitely keep going, am addicted now! 😊

Well done - Congratulations! I'm on W8R3 and looking forward to tackling week 9 next week so hopefully I will be graduating soon too. I'm hoping to move on the the C25K+ podcasts and sign up for a local Park Run to keep me motivated. Good luck and keep running!

Michael says if you get stitches try to drink well (I think he means water) before you run and slow your pace if that fails to work. Grin and bear it is another way. But many congratulations for graduating.
