W9 R3 Finished!! πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“ πŸŽ‰πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

The sun was rising, ducks were out on the village pond and the last 3 mins were downhill so I even did a sprint finish!! I am officially a C25K Graduate πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“!!!

What an amazing journey it’s been. Took longer than 9 weeks as I worked through foot injury, flu, snow and those thoughts that told me I couldn’t... but I can!!

Thank you all for your support and encouragement and being part of the journey!!

For those just starting hang in there, trust the process, listen to advice on here, and take all the encouragement you can, it’s amazing what you can achieve!!!

Amazing! Well done you.

It almost certainly doesn't matter for this run, but I read that you will feel the downhills more than the uphills the day after and I have found it to be true, so be careful of the sprints going down in future. By all means enjoy them but something to bear in mind on your brand new running journey now you are a grad! =)

Thank you! Yes it was a fun way to end but I won’t make a habit of it. Having been injured once I’m a bit too cautious about being reckless and not following proven advice!

Going to give it a week to consolidate and then start the Ju-Ju plan in the hope that I won’t have to walk too much on race day!
