So finally graduated although Wk9 has not been so pretty. I think the pre-xmas festivities have hampered (no pun intended) my progress. Wk9 run 2 & 3 have been hard work and slow but my aim has been to get to this stage regardless of speed and then consolidate. Speed can come later if needed or desired. Oldfloss has been a constant companion when things get difficult (slow and steady) and indeed this forum has been an inspiration reading about everyone's progress and determination to succeed. Without it, i am not sure I would reached this far. My only gripe might be towards IannodaTruffe as it took me a long time to get his/your username Sometimes my mind is as slow as my running. When the realisation finally dawned I groaned in dismay but it seems so obvious now. Better news is your advice has been a constant help to me so many thanks for your shared wisdom.
Anyway I wish you all a merry xmas and happy running xxx take care my virtual friends
