Well I'm 61 years old, 3 stone overweight and have literally never willingly run a step in my life!! Today I graduated and managed to run 4.75k in the 30 minutes. I was so happy when I walked back in the door I burst into tears!!! (Soppy cow alert!) I really didn't expect it to be such a big deal, especially as I have actually been running the 30 minutes since week 7, as that is how my route works, so I was just running that little bit extra to get to the footpath to walk back home. But the fact I graduated and actually achieved this seems like the biggest thing since passing my driving test nearly 4.5 decades ago. I will miss Laura, although I think I'm most likely to carry on using the app to time myself, and hopefully get faster & make it to 5k in 30 minutes. Thank you all you lovely people for being so supportive and all round great!.
Yay! Finally graduated today! So emotional - Couch to 5K
