Finally a graduate!! 😁

β€’22 Replies

After a few days resting up due to a cough and tight chest, got myself up and out this morning armed with a new playlist and my inhaler. Although I’d wanted to finish the plan running somewhere lovely, I knew I wouldn’t really have time before work and have been desperate to graduate so I ran my usual route. It turned out to be lovely anyway - passing the usual people on their way to work, familiar dog walkers, past the shops, round the park, past the pub and then down the long main road, grinning all the way. Ordinary but somehow comforting. So happy to finish. Planning a run in the woods with my dog at the weekend which I’m looking forward to.

( can’t believe I think things like that now - so not me!!)

At the risk of sounding β€˜Oscar night’, thank you to everyone on this forum for your support, encouragement and for sharing your experiences and advice. I would never have completed this without being part of this community.

A Graduation Run is never an ordinary run...πŸ˜„all those times you went out and worked hard, in the cold etc. have culminated in your Wk9 R3 run and as you say it was your 'usual' routeπŸ˜† sound like a proper runner!

Lots more fun to be had now you can run for 30 is a link to a post suggesting what to do next....

Enjoy your celebrations and have a great run at the weekend with your dog in the woods...😊x

Nice shiny badge too!

Thank you so much. I’m welling up with tears now !! 😭

Nice one! :) So pleased for you. I know exactly what you mean about wanting to make it all "special" and then you're like "No, I want to do it more than I care about that" :D Onward and upward!

Haha yes that’s exactly how it was. Had my first post graduate run this morning. I’m amazed that I seem to have this drive to run !!! I really don’t know where it’s come from !

Congratulations! Enjoy that high, it is such an achievement. Stick with it. Have fun.

Thank you Claire x
