Graduation day whoop whoop and UP YOURS mental health!

This afternoon I completed week 9, run 3 and have graduated 😀.

Just like to say UP YOURS to mental health!!! I won this time!!!

To anyone who is finding this a mental challenge to keep running when the head is telling u that u can’t do it, keep fighting thro it n prove it wrong!

Those days u can barely get out of bed, dress urself, battling to get urself to the gym or out side to run .... believe in urself!!

Keep going, keep telling urself u are strong, u can do this!!!! Find support in ppl around u, let them help u on ur way.

Today I continued past the 30 minute run so I could officially say I went from couch to 5km in 9 weeks. Took me 37.82 minutes but I’m very happy with that!

Iv found a new fight within me these last 9 weeks. A hard physical journey on the outside but a much harder and rewarding battle that went on within!
