Hello Week 9 Run 1...

β€’25 Replies

Hi everyone.

So this is it... last week of this brilliant programme. I cant begin to praise it enough and I'm sure that people around me are fed up of me talking about it but that's just tough. This programme has got me out, about and doing something constructive for myself.

Anyway a comfortable run this evening. Kept my pace nice and slow as I wasn't sure how the extra 2 minutes would be. Covered the same distance as I did in my last 28 minute run. So I definitely went slower.

2 more 30 minute runs to go and graduation time at long last.

I can definitely do this. 😊

Thank you soo much. You guys have been fantastic throughout my journey.x


Well done! I had β€œThe Final Countdown” going through my head reading your opening sentences 🀣

Donna79 in reply to Jay66UK

Thank you. Haha I was actually listening to that song towards the end of my run too. It seems to keep me going when the going gets tough.

Woo, spooky telepathy moment 😳🀣🀣

You certainly can do it Donna79.....I am on the same week and run as you. I quite enjoyed my run this evening. I am looking forward to my cap and gown !! X

Don't for the badge and T.shirt too. You'll have to change your name too. Because we are runners now. 😊

Nice one Donna! You have broken the jinx of bad 1st week 9 runs.

Going slower sounds just right.

You certainly sound in the groove and set up for a good graduation week.

Also very well done for getting further in the program than you did last time. More reasons to have a big smile on your face! πŸ˜€

Well done youβ€” you are definitely entitled to bore them on this!!

How are you doing....nearly finished? X

Hiya, last run tomorrow if I can manage it because I'm getting some heel pain at the moment. I've rested up all day today though and used as many remedies as I could. So fingers crossed my run tomorrow won't be too painful.

What about you?

Imnotarunner43Graduate in reply to Donna79

I graduated this morning. I am proud of myself. I'm hoping that you will be ok for tomorrow. Good luck x

Awww a big congratulations to you. Wow you made it.😊

Now you definately have to change your name because you are a runner now.πŸ˜€


You CAN definitely do this! Well done. I found W9 a tough one I have to say. Hoping to get used to running for 30 mins & build on it over the next few weeks. Good luck for your next two runs. You will totally smash it - we’ll keep the podium warm for you!

Donna79 in reply to Hidden

Hopefully will graduate tomorrow at long last. 😊

Hidden in reply to Donna79

Good luck! I’ve just been looking back at some of my old posts- I did my first run 3 months ago. Can’t believe at one point I was worried about running for 3 minutes. This programme is absolutely amazing & really really works! Let us know how you get on.

Donna79 in reply to Hidden

I agree with you there. I sometimes look back and remember how far I've come. Nice to see the progress in black and white.

Of course I will update tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it.


Good luck with the last 2 runs!

Donna79 in reply to Ang33333

Thank you.


Get the champagne on ice, you're nearly there Donna πŸΎπŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™€οΈxx

Donna79 in reply to Gilliano666

I'll be putting a bottle in the fridge tonight as I should graduate tomorrow. Feeling alittle nervous now. 😊


I'm sure you'll absolutely smash it! (The run, not the bottle of bubbly πŸ˜‰) xxx


Your smashing it! Fabulous work πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ
