Week 9 run 3... I DID IT!!!

Ashleev profile image

I’m still on my warm down walk, but I just did it!!! Never in my life did I expect to be able to run!! My pace today was my slowest - everything was sore by the end. I think I was over thinking it. Made it though - and now to decide where to go from here. Maybe a 10k middle of next year. Definitely don’t want to lose my focus and new found fitness!!

Huge thanks to all those who encouraged me along the way - your words of support and wisdom meant so much! Wouldn’t be here without you!

Enjoy the next runs. I think a lot of us have posted a feeling sense of freedom on our first postgraduate runs.

P.s I have those trainers!

Congratulations. Now just keep it going by getting out there 2-3 times a week and just building on that fitness.

Congratulations, go get your graduation badge - pinned posts to the right. You've done the work, now get to enjoy the gleam

Congratulations, graduate :) Brilliant achievement. Did you ever think you'd make it?

Many congratulations, fellow runner!

Now to consolidate and ingrain the habit.

You have come a long way in the last few weeks.

Just think where you might go in the next few years.

Keep running, keep smiling.

I think from here, I’ll invite my husband out. He’s fitter than me, so pushes my pace a little without trying!

A friend is also planning a 10k middle of next year - and I think I’ve a good chance of being ready for that by then (if I can do this much in 3 months, I’m sure I can hit 10k in another 7!)

Thanks again for all the encouragement! I started this journey determined, but doubting myself - a small part of me never believed I could do it! But... here I am!
