Did it!

Well chuffed to bits I am as today I completed W9R3. I was almost emotional! I have used two long songs to get me through the 30mins runs and they have worked a treat, just as I flag my fave bit comes in and donates an endorphin! Going to have just a little break to help my Plantar Fascitis, my knee ligaments and my poor nips! Then I will rewind a couple of weeks and see if I can get the speed up a bit, then aim at 35 mins and hopefully 5k!

Please can I have badge/certificate :-)

Well done! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

My sympathies with the sore nips. There is a product called NipEAZE which are essentially small round plasters that stop the running. Or Lanacane cream.

I knew I might need to be measured for running shoes, but not for nipple protectors! πŸ˜‚

I am old school rock. This week I used Telegraph Road (Dire straits)at the start then In the Cage Medley from Live in Berlin Genesis

It might be just me but the Genesis Medley works too. Great double drum sound which just lifts me then calms down. I like the long songs, they draw you in and all of a sudden 17mins is gone..

It is on live in Berlin album also. I get lost in the drums from about 8 mins onwards with 2 of the worlds best albeit arthritic drummers complimenting each other. Ok I am a bit of an anorak!

Congratulations Graduate!

Enjoy the party and bask in that glory!

Consolidation then,lots of it, to keep on building up those legs and stamina.. then maybe C25K+ podcasts.. and check out the post from IannodaTruffe .. What next!

Congratulations on your graduation! How wonderful! I like your idea of having a couple of tried and tested tunes so you can gauge exactly where you are in the run. I might nick that idea if you don’t mind! 😜

I think (know) I’ll blub when I graduate. Still a little way off though!

Again, very well done! πŸ˜€πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Keep at it! earlier it was a bit of a mix of songs but fine tuned in the latter songs, understand the emotion I do!

Congratulations and well done! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰πŸ₯‡
