Brilliant run, well done! Keep getting out there πŸ‘πŸΌ

Woah!! Well done Mummycav you did itπŸ˜„...

Im so so pleased for you, I felt you wanted to progress but had a bit of a block...

Welcome to Week 4..its lovely 😎

You did really well to push through and use all the techniques and distractions suggested, and the thought of composing a victorious post helped you succeed.😊😊😊😊

I was running this morning too and it was remember you are never running alone...

Keep going...and enjoy that feeling.βœ‹


Well done! Top job... week 3 will soon be a distant memory and you'll wonder how it ever felt hard... did the names get more colourful as the run went on :D

Ha ha...yes....especially the dog who jumped up at me when it had been through the beck!!! 😫

Go you, name those trees, houses, dogs, plants whatever it takes just do it. And we don't do disasters here, as we both now know, merely practice runs to build stamina, confidence KLM's run. Fabulous darling

Ha ha...everything had a name & I counted to ten I don't know how many times, but it all worked!!! Knowing that everyone who'd been reading my updates would genuinely be chuffed when they read it, that was my biggest motivator x

Reading this has given me a big boost for the same run tonight! :) Amazing, well done!

MummycavModerator in reply to MrsT82

Go for it...good luck..I'll be thinking about u!!! x

MummycavModerator in reply to MrsT82

....& I'm still buzzing!!!!

MrsT82 in reply to Mummycav

That is so good to hear. I'm still stuck in work. All explained in my own post this morning but I have a checklist to follow before I can hopefully get out at around 6:30pm. First on the list is to get through the day without falling asleep at my desk.

You go for it... now you know it works!!! :)x

Isobel in reply to MrsT82

Reading yours means I must make the effort to do it tonight!!

MummycavModerator in reply to Isobel

Definitely....think about how accomplished you feel afterwards...brilliant end to the day!!


Go you! Well done πŸŽ–


Yes, yes and YES! Knew you would do it... absolutely brilliant!!!


We were hiding behind the trees in case you tried to stop :) I was behind the one called Ethel x

MummycavModerator in reply to Oldfloss

πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†...I'll be thinking about you loitering in the bushes on Wed when I go again!!!!

OldflossAdministrator in reply to Mummycav

Rustle, rustle.... enough to scare anyone! xx

RebeccaSKGraduate in reply to Oldfloss

Are you trying to make her run faster Oldfloss ;-)

Thank you I need that motivation looking at week 4 with dread but you have helped wish me luck

MummycavModerator in reply to Isobel

You can do it...honestly...good luck x


Well, that's just brilliant. Well done you for breaking the bad spell and cracking it. Whilst we all knew you could do it, I'm glad that you knew too. Still looking forward to seeing you on that podium.

Fantastic! Well done you! You've given me some inspiration for my own W4 in 2 runs time!

MummycavModerator in reply to Charlottefc87

You'll be fab!!


Great stuff!


Yesssssss!!! So happy for you. Now you know it's possible to complete C25k. All the best for the rest of this journey x


You are a machine!!! So pleased for you, lovely. WELL DONE! xx


I love, love, LOVE posts like this. I don't want to put anyone off but I thought that when I graduated suddenly every run would be so much easier. It's not. Last night I barely ran a mile before I had to stop - and reading posts like this is wonderful, motivating, inspiring and gives me a wonderful warm feeling! This running lark is alright really - you just have to put the bad runs behind you so that they don't affect your next run. You did that - and it's not easy - so well done!

MummycavModerator in reply to RebeccaSK

Awww, thank you


"Even the trees had names" - made me giggle out loud!!

MummycavModerator in reply to Lizzylobdob

Ha ha!!!


Well done. It's a great feeling of achievement ticking each run off. Great progress

MummycavModerator in reply to Suzang

It felt good all day!!!

Well done


You certainly succeeded on all fronts. I reckon everyone on the forum has their runs of great joy and runs of disappointment but we're all here to support through thick and thin.
