I've only gone and done it!

β€’16 Replies

I've graduated and it wasn't quite like it was going to be in my head at the beginning of the week! I was supposed to finish on Wednesday and I was going to really enjoy the last run. Well firstly it didn't happen Wednesday (put the kit on and promptly stripped it off when I remembered I was supposed to 20 miles away half an hour ago), so I went today after dropping my son off at uni. I was hungry when I got back, and more importantly in desperate need of a cup of tea. I went out anyway but boy was I grumpy about it, felt more of a stomp than a run! But I did the 30 mins and I'm feeling soooo good now and so pleased that I've actually made it to the end of the programme and thinking that yes, one day I will be able to run for 5k. I'm off now to clamber onto the podium with a cup of tea in one hand and a choccie biscuit in the other and collect my badge. Actually, could someone please hold the tea and pass it up to me, I'll only spill it....
