W9R3 done! I'm a graduate

Fimoo profile image

Never thought I'd get here when I started all this running lark back in April and here I am, a graduate who can run for 30mins. Absolutely chuffed and so grateful for all the support from the lovely folk on this forum. I can't quite believe it but I'm a runner! Look forward to joining the consolidation crew while considering my options for next steps. It might be pushing on to do 5k distance or speeding up, or maybe even just plodding along for 30 mins enjoying this new running version of me and seeing where it takes me. Thanks again folks for all your support

Thanks Jay, almost feels a bit like a dream, has this really happened? You bet your backside it did!

I know.

For a good couple of weeks after I’d go out the door to do a longer run and be thinking “How am I able to do this? Did I really graduate?!”

Enjoy the runs that follow. My best advice is plan for 3x 30 mins for the first week and think from there.

I was so nervous and put it off last night. I dnt know where that came from I was only competing against my own head. Turned out to be a lovely non dramatic run, the sky clouded over for the first time in two weeks here and it was so cool. It hasn't really sunk in yet but I'm celebrating with a large gin regardless 🍸

Well done Fimoo! I graduated last week and have done 3 x 5k runs since then. I've definitely caught the running bug - which amazes me (and my husband who thought I'd give up in week 2!) Keep enjoying your running, you've done fab to get this far x
