oh I'm not sure on both counts - sorry bit of a techno idiot - no worries as the achievement is within ourselves isn't it really?!!! Well done to all who've completed the C25K this weekend - a fantastic feeling:):):)

I managed to graduate last night. 9/10 weeks ago, I never would have believed that I could jog for 30 minutes non-stop but this last week filled with 3 x 30 minute runs have opened my eyes to what I can achieve when I put my mind to it.

This app is fab and I will continue building on the progress I have made. Thank you for opening my eyes to all of the different possibilities! Podge123

Finally finished - me and the lad got to the 28 minutes runs (week 8) then holiday intervened. He then had secondary school start so hasn't had the time or energy to finish. However one of the points of doing this was to build his fitness and confidence. At the end of his first day he came home and announced that not only was he doing an hours games lesson the next day but he'd chosen to stay after school for an hour of rugby training - which he also did the following day. He's happy and confident and much more active than previously so I regard that as a success for him even though he hasn't technically graduated.

In my case once we got back off holiday and I was back at work I've reverted to treadmill running as I can do that in my lunch hour rather than the darker evenings. It has the advantage that I can monitor my pace/distance within the 30 minute runs of week 9. Those got ticked off last week so I'm officially finished. On the last run I clocked about 4.6km in the 30 miles so not that far off the 5k. I suspect when I finally get round to doing our local park run I'll be a bit slower as it has a few hills on the course.

This week has been a bit of a "take it easy" week with just some swimming because I have my eye on a 20 mile charity walk on Sunday and want to make sure my knees aren't creaking before I start. Back to running next week.
