I did it!

Did W9R3 tonight, super chuffed with myself. I am totally amazed at what I have achieved simply by following this programme. I could barely run for 30 seconds 9 weeks ago and now I can run for 30 minutes. I am not fast and have not reached 5k yet but that’s my next challenge. Thanks to everyone for all the encouragement along the way. Even more happy that I have done this before my 58th birthday on Wednesday.xx

Oh wow, big congratulations Mairi, so well done. Sorry late with post but been away camping with grandson and no internet.

Happy birthday for yesterday :)

You must feel great. Any post grad runs yet?

Reply

Thanks so much, hope you had a good time camping and got good weather, it has been scorching here this last few days ( north Scotland). Tried to do my first post grad run last night, total failure! So glad I had already graduated lol .x

We had lovely weather during the day then thunder and lightning at night so not bad really.

Oh wow north Scotland, never been but want to get there. Are you remote? Always have visions of north Scotland being wild and somehow romantic, must be the films I've seen lol..lol..

Yes up until tonight's run my post grad runs have been rubbish. No rhyme nor reason just bloody hard, felt like I was going backwards not progressing. We just have to stick with it mairi, we can do this :)
