W9R3 - I am a graduate!!!

YAY!!!! I can't believe I actually did it! Thank you all so much for the help over the past 9/10 weeks. I don't think I could have made it without your support :)

Just thought I would share a few important things I have learnt from C25K

1) You can always go slower!

2) There is no such thing as a failed run!

3) It is as tough mentally, as it is physically!

4) Take your time to recover from injury and illness!

5) The advice given on this forum is invaluable, use it well :)

Now time to aim for that 5K!!!

    Many congratulations, and happy running into the future. Are you planning on doing a parkrun soon? It's a terrific and very supportive atmosphere. One of my facebook friends was a marshal on the day of my first parkrun. She'd been following my updates on facebook, and gave me a big hug when I turned up at the course.

  • I am hoping to. There is one just up the road from me :)

    I have not done a lot of running outside, usually 1 run every 1-2 weeks so going to try to transition to that first :) Then on my next Saturday off from work I'll give it a go :) I've heard only good things about Parkrun
