Graduation Run complete!

Obligatory sweaty selfie! Ok it took just over 3 months so longer than 9wks and im nowhere near 5k yet, but even that is an achievement for a fat over forty non runner. Bit disapointed that the graduation run was my worst of week 9 though. Still averaging above 8.2km, so i guess its time to consolidate and keep going. Thanks to everyone here and to this forum for existing. Genuinely couldnt have kept going otherwise. Oh and sports bras: they also get a couldnt have done it without the support shout out. Now how to keep motivation and enthusiasm going?

Congratulations Lucy, huge well done!! I hope you enjoy the afterglow of this as it is an amazing achievement. Don't stop now, you have done the really hard bit now you can just continue with your 30 min runs until you feel you want to go further or faster. Well done again :) :)

I agree set small achieveable targets that maybe add some variety to your runs. Maybe try a new route, anything that will keep you interested and motivated to lace up and head out. :) :)
