Graduated!

Hi all, Iโ€™ve done W9R3 this morning! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ‘ I didnโ€™t quite manage 5K in 30 mins, but I did manage 32:53 for 5K so more than happy with that!

Whoโ€™d have thought Iโ€™d be saying that 9 weeks ago? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค—

Iโ€™ve booked a nice meal at a Brasserie in South Croydon to celebrate at lunchtime ๐Ÿฅฉ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿท

Thanks to you all for the support over the journey, I wouldnโ€™t have made it without your help ๐Ÿ˜

Shuffle along the podium please, thereโ€™s a little bloke trying to get up there! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜€

Definitely! I hope at least one large glass of something was also involved. You can run it off tomorrow โ˜บ

Iโ€™m not one to do things by halves, so I had a carafe of Pinot Grigio with three courses๐Ÿ˜€ Donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll need to eat much for the rest of today โ˜บ๏ธ As you say, thereโ€™s always tomorrow to work it off! ๐Ÿ˜Š
