I am absolutely thrilled to share with you all I completed my graduation run this morning 😁 but I’m also excited as I know this is just the beginning of my running journey! I am absolutely hooked and love the feeling of accomplishment at the end of each run 😁
My graduation run wasn’t quite how I imagined it as unfortunately the weather had changed, as I headed out the rain was coming down quite heavy! I decided to run the same route I had run on Thursday night and had quietly said to myself, if I had enough in the tank I would try and push on for the 5k 😉
The first 10mins were tough as always but I kept telling myself “it’s just the toxic 10 and then it will become easier” My choice of music today was ‘The Greatest Showman’ soundtrack and as I settled into the run the track ‘Come Alive’ came on, before I knew it I was clicking my fingers as I ran along in the run...grinning like a loon as normal 😆
I passed other early morning runners who all gave me a cheery ‘morning’ as we all got on with our own thing in the rain. When Sarah told me I had finished my 30min run I knew I could push on a bit further, I kept it slow and steady but did manage 5k 😳 it took me another 10mins but it was a personal goal I had set myself and I’m delighted I managed it.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way, given me advice which I have listened to and the amazing forum community. To those that are just starting C25K, I’m so excited for you as it’s an amazing plan. I still can’t quite believe how C25K has changed my life and I’m loving it 🏃🏼♀️👍
Happy running everyone xx
