YAY!!!So Happy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ W9 R3 completed

Cannot believe that I have finally completed C2 5K. I tried to run before this but hated it and gave up several times. Thank you everyone for the motivation & support youโ€™ve given me, inc tips along the way. โ€œslooow ๐Ÿข๐ŸŒ & steadyโ€ has definitely seen me through.

I am on such a high at the moment, weather was awful but I was so excited it didnโ€™t bother me. For everyone who is doing this programme โ€œyou can do this !!โ€ Listen to the tips from those on this forum, it really does make a difference. Good Luck ๐Ÿ€ xx

Btw, where do I go next?

Well done and congrats. First of all,consolidate your running three times a week at the 5km level. Then take a sneaky peek at the Bridge to 10k group, if thatโ€™s what you want to do.

Some folk like to focus on speed and the speed podcasts help there. Oh and not forget parkruns. They are often a real boost post graduation.

But first of all just enjoy the view from that podium.

Happy running

Well done! Itโ€™s a wonderful sense of achievement, hey?

I graduated before Xmas and am doing an occasional Parkrun and also running 2-3 times per week trying new routes, etc. Getting bored now so need some structure too, maybe train for 10K ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

I know. I still remember how hard those first few runs were. 1 minute felt like an eternity and I thought my ankles would shatter from the strain! Amazing how quickly they (& I) toughened up. 3 more to go. Only getting out about once a week at the moment but it'll still be soon. ๐Ÿ˜†

Enjoy the next step of your running adventure.

When I graduated, I treated myself to a new playlist of favourite music to jolly me along on my consolidation runs. Running to jazz is soooo dance flavoured! ๐Ÿ˜„
