Week 9 run 3 done๐ŸŽ‰

After a week of no running, as I was on holiday and didn't fancy running on the twisty, narrow Cornish road with those high stone walls each side, I went out this morning determined to do the last 30 min run in the programme. Got into a rhythm, ran up all the hills (slowly ๐Ÿ˜ƒ) and kept going until Laura said "that's it."

So pleased - didn't get to 5k in 30 mins (it was 4.2k) but I kept going that's the important thing. Not sure I would have done it without reading all the good advice on this forum that it's ok to slow down - at 60 this was so important for me. Thanks Oldfloss and everyone!

  • Congratulations- distance is not relevant but you did the time. Enjoy your post-grad runs and don't forget to claim your shiny badge!

    Well done on Graduating the plan.

    Keep running, you have lots more adventures to try.๐Ÿ˜Šx

  • Thank you Jan-now-runs - how are you getting on since graduating? Any tips?

  • When I graduated I was only running 4.2k in my 30 min run. I carried on doing 30 min runs and used the C25k+podcasts too which have Laura coaching you. I did these for ages, plus went running for fun at different locations.

    I tried the B210k after about six months of consolidation and got quite far with it, but it is tiring. This year I have recently reached the 5k mark non-stop and am enjoying repeating that goal.

    Finding new routes helps a lot and having a playlist on shuffle.

    You are right to be proud of yourself, running for 30 mins is a huge acheivement...keep posting as it helps with motivation.๐Ÿ˜Š

    There is usually a Quest you can join if you look at the 'pinned posts'....

  • Thanks really helpful. Will look out for the quests. Make some play lists too.

  • The quests are fun.. and there is, oh so much to try from now on :)

  • Well done on graduating!!! :)

  • Cheers ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • Congratulations and well done !

    Brilliant achievement ๐ŸŽ‰

    I'm almost 60 too and like you say would never have done it without the help and support on this forum ๐Ÿ˜

  • Thanks Sarahb18 - we'll done to you too. I think I was getting frustrated that I didn't seem to be getting any faster - the forum helped me to see that slow and steady is OK!

  • It is the best...honestly... you just wait and see where Slow and Steady can get you!!!


    It may make you smile if you have free moment:) x

  • Made me smile ๐Ÿ˜Š You look good - defo the body of a youngster there. 10k ....maybe after consolidating the 30 min run slow and steady!

  • It is all there... just waiting for you :) x
