I did it! W9r3 complete!! Graduation!!!

Did my final run this morning! It was amazing to think back to when I was jogging along the same route but for only 60 seconds at a time. I never would have thought I could have jogged for a whole half hour back then, only two months ago! Of course it’s actually been “Couch to 4 and a bit k” for me but I’m very happy with that. Not sure what to do next. There’s no races near me or park runs. Any ideas for next goals? What are good podcasts etc to increase speed?

Congratulations Jimmers. That graduation badge is going to dazzle everyone. 🏃‍♂️⭐️🍾🥂🏆🎉. Consolidate for 3 weeks is the professional advice to get stronger . Then there’s always 5 to 10k app .....

Thank you! I will take this advice and try doing the last week over a few times with each of the different coaches.

well done! there's a guide to post-graduation running in the FAQs in the pinned posts which includes ideas and follow-on things. But importantly, don't forget to ask for your badge, search for "May 2018 Graduation badge" also in the pinned posts. Congrats!

Thanks! I’ve asked for a badge and read through the FAQ post. It’s very comprehensive! I think I will just try and do 30mins 3 times a week for 3 or 4 weeks to start as @Dexy5 suggested. Might try redoing the last week on the app but with a different trainer each time (though Sarah Millican has been very good to me!)
