I've only gone and done it ✅... and I'm shouting it from the rooftops so I hope you can all hear me!!!
Woke at 7:15 this morning, donned the gear, found the app, plugged in the music, drank a glass of water and off I went!!
Beautiful morning to do a graduation run and the sunrise seemed to be there just for me 🌅
Run was as perfect as a run could get. Pace. Breathing. Music. Scenery. Weather.
I don't know what the secret of the C25K is but if I did I bottle it a make a fortune. For anyone starting, in the middle of or nearly at the end of this program, keep going. I know it sounds silly but just keep at it. Slow and steady are 3 words that I will take with me wherever I go and I swear by them!!
Don't get me wrong this running malarkey is hard, it can make you doubt yourself, the gremlins are always ready to say 'I told you so', doubters will always doubt, (usually from the comfort of their own sofa as they're too scared to try it themselves) but with determination, strength and sheer bloody mindedness you can and will achieve.
Running has given me something that I didn't think I would find-an inner peace and calm that makes me feel incredible.
Exactly 9 weeks ago I started this journey feeling a little lost and not sure which direction my life would take next but it seems that I've found the path that I need to tread. Or should that be run?! Today's 5km run was 8 secs faster than Thursdays so I think I'm heading in the right direction!!
A thousand thank yous and a thousand more to each and every one of you, my family. Without you I never would have gotten this far or loved it as much 😊
Sending much running love ❤️ loads of encouragement and oodles of inspiration to you all 😘...... I'm off in search of some more rooftops to shout from-
"I'M A GRADUATE 👩🏻🎓👩🏻🎓!!"
