Finished! Thanks everyone.

Morning all.

I'm a lurker here, having joined when i started C25K a couple of months ago.

I've just come back from successfully completing W9R3. I wanted to come on here and thank all the forum members that have helped me complete the programme - I been reading all the posts and taking note. I think without all the advice on here I wouldn't have completed it.

My take-home messages:

-FTDP

-It will work

-Duration, not speed is the key

-Get decent shoes

-Ignore Laura's advice on a) breathing b) landing on the heel

-W5R3 isn't THAT bad

-FTDP

- there are no failed runs, only practice ones

Now time for some parkruns...

Thanks again!
