Final run done

Hello all, I have just completed run 3 week 9, I'm absolutely chuffed to bits, it was a lovely comfortable run, big beaming smile all the way home. Thanks to all you amazing, warm, witty wonderful people on here, your advice and encouragement have made this running thing so much easier. The next thing for me is park runs. Now where do I get my badge.

A rose by any other name? I shall name you..... Graduate... :)

Well-deserved glory Martin, for someone who has given so much, already to the forum family, and this programme.

The way you have travelled your journey with determination, positivity and humour, and always, always, finding time to reply and support others.

Very well done.... get on to that Podium and wear that badge with pride. :)

PS

The best bit...? This is just the beginning... next best bit... we will be here too :) xx

I did a slow easy 20mins this morning. X

MrsT82 in reply to Martin_Rose

I’ve not been out since Saturday as my ankles are hurting. Side effect of the fibro unfortunately but at least I can admit that now 🙈😂

Martin_Rose profile image
Martin_RoseGraduate in reply to MrsT82

I'm sorry to hear that, any idea how long you'll be unable to run?

MrsT82 profile image
MrsT82 in reply to Martin_Rose

I did a 3km walk around site on my lunch break today. They felt ok. I’ll test it in the morning by jogging up and down the stairs. If that’s ok I’m going to try a short 3km run at lunch tomorrow as I work at home on Fridays x

Martin_RoseGraduate in reply to MrsT82

That sounds positive, I was hoping to stalk you on the park run on Saturday. 😉
