Graduation Day ~ Yippee!

I made it, Yippee! It's been a fairly arduous journey but by 'eck I'm feeling accomplished.

W8R3 and W9R3 have been my only 2 rainy runs. Last week was ok as I dodged running Santas with my son and our destination was Morrison's for a brunch fry up!

Today my graduation run was solo and I was filled with determination to reach that graduation line. Oh and guess what, I borrowed my son's trainers!

Like all those before me, I am amazed at the success of C25K from turning me from a couch potato to someone who exercises 3 times a week.

Though I may not be achieving the 5k in distance I do manage the 30mins non-stop. I won't lie it is still daunting and I do struggle a bit, but what I have to do now is keep it up.

Thank you so much for all the support on here to get me to today. :)

Well done.

If you are going to continue, I would suggest that you get a gait analysis done at a specialist running shop and buy your own running shoes.

Just keep running those 30 minute runs for a few weeks and you will become more comfortable with them. Keep it nice and slow most of the time.

Keep running, keep smiling.
