Hi I'm Dash3 this is my first post on this forum. I started this programme back in late September and finally completed my graduation run yesterday, so it's taken me a while longer than the expected 9 weeks, had a few breaks due to weather conditions and a niggly back, but got there in the end😌 just can't believe that I actually ran for 30 minutes continually. This programme is absolutely amazing!!!! Although I haven't posted anything till now, I have checked in almost daily and I can honestly say that without the support and encouragement from all you lovely people, especially the girls and boys of a certain age like myself . I'm 65, and have never run in my life, always liked the idea of it,but never give it a go. I can't say it's been easy, and there have been so many times , particularly in the last few weeks and the longer runs when I have thought , WHY AM I DOING THIS but oh the feeling you get when you complete a run is fantastic! So where to now? I've read lots of people say that they've felt a bit lost after graduation, so I think I will carry on with week 9 for a while, don' think i'm ready to let Mr Johnson go just yet. So a massive thank you to you all once again for getting me through. Just hope i don't let you all down and fall off the wagon.
