Done it!

Well I’ve finished my third 30 minute run! I’m so delighted! It was hard though so the consolidation advised on this forum is definitely needed. The next goal will be to reach 5 k which I’m currently nowhere near. Im hoping to take part in my first park run next week and will walk/run it for the experience. This programme and all the great advice on here has been so helpful. Thanks!

Congratulations, Aine and good luck with getting to 5k


Congratulations runner 🎓🏅🏃🏻‍♀️

Enjoy your running adventure.

You have 5k to aim for now as your next achievement.

Go get your graduation badge and enjoy the view from the podium 😊



Wonderful! Well done you! What a great feeling 👍🏅🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


Congratulations especially with the weather this week - you must be warm with pride!! 🏆

It took me 2 months to get to 5k and only then because I decided to force it on myself. Don’t worry about distance for now - do your consolidation runs then enjoy a few more before stretching out.


Well done you!!! You did it, even in these conditions! I know the feeling about consolidating - this is my immediate plan too. Good thinking about the parkrun - should help reach the 5k!

Enjoy your new badge - well deserved!


Congratulations AineMc🎉🎉🎉

Congratulations on a well done graduation run. Happy running for the 5k target


Thanks for all the messages. I must admit I am in Spain so haven’t been doing these last runs in the snow like most of you. Back to the cold tomorrow🌨😕. Certainly made it easier to complete though. Well done to all of you who have kept it up in the arctic winter!


Brilliant! Well done


Congratulations! Amazing achievement.
