Not pretty, definitely not gazelle like..... but I've done it!!!! 😊

Week 9 has been pretty tricky for me and for one reason and another I've had to spread it over 3 weeks!!!! But...drumroll please! Tonight I finally completed it....run 3 in the bag....I must say it was really hard going and a couple of times I wasn't sure if I was going to make it.....but determination and sheer bloody mindedness enabled me to get through it!!! I feel immensely proud of the 47 year old girl who just over 12 weeks ago couldn't run a bath and now really can 'run' 30 minutes!!! Amazing.......so I shall enjoy my achievement and try and work out what next?

Well done 🏆. I just did wk9r1 and after 12 minutes in thought I would pack in, but as you persevered and did it , but still got another 2 runs to do.

What are plans for running now ?

Thank you!

I really don't know, I never imagined I'd get to this point! I think I would like to work towards a 10K but for the next few weeks I'll just try and run as much as I can.......!

Congratulations and very well done... !

Now.. well party time... some runs....just because you can....and then loads of consolidation of the 30 minute runs... and vary the routes and the distances.. then maybe C25K+ podcasts? Different and testing different disciplines..... then.. maybe move to the Bridge to 10K forum... loads of advice there...

But for now.. bask in the glory!
