W9R2

It has taken me a while to get to this point. I was hoping to have graduated this week. But with one thing or another it hasn't happened. However, I managed my first 5K today and I am super chuffed. 34 minutes, pretty pleased with that.

Only one more run to go until graduation :) This couch is well and truly smashed! BOOM!

See that shiny badge next to my name? That means I did it! 🎆🎊🎉😆😆🍻

Graduated a month ago, had some really good (and downright awful!) Runs since then! But at the minute hoping whatever ailment is bothering me will b*gger off soon, as I have my first race on Sunday, a colour run. Really looking forward to it! If you want time thing to help with motivation, try downloading 'run, zombies!' from the play store, it's a series of podcasts, the story line is ace and makes me laugh when I 'pick up' things like knickers as i run!

Dee_NGraduate in reply to Flaraflarkin

It’s not for me at the moment but maybe in the future. I’ll just try and maintain my fitness I think!! Don’t want to come off the forum though! X

Flaraflarkin profile image
FlaraflarkinGraduate in reply to Dee_N

That's all I'm doing - trying to commit to doing 3 x 5k per week but still posting on B210K to keep me focused and to keep my motivation going 😊 I am a million miles away from increasing to anywhere near 10 😱 I can't really see myself wanting to either at the mo, but no need to stop posting lovely! Don't go disappearing 🤗

Dee_NGraduate in reply to Flaraflarkin

That sounds more my cup of tea! Do I move forum or stay put!? Feel like a fraud moving over lol x

Will get the Dyson out to give the red carpet a quick going over, so your path to the podium is in pristine condition and 34 mins for your first 5k is stellar! 🙏👏👏💪💪💪🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️

😁😁😁😁 you guys are too kind! Thank you so much! I’ll have to find a posh frock 🤣

By the way are you incredibly tiny or is that a huge Toblerone?

Dee_N profile image
Dee_NGraduate in reply to Berksrover

Jeez have you only just noticed the HUGE toblerone!? 4.5kg 😅

Berksrover profile image
BerksroverGraduate in reply to Dee_N

Is it true that the bigger the Toblerone the fewer the calories in them? 😁

Had a week in the UK last week but back in India again now for 2 weeks

Dee_N profile image
Dee_NGraduate in reply to Berksrover

Any cooler there??

Berksrover profile image
BerksroverGraduate in reply to Dee_N

Not really, about 30 degrees, so even if it wasn't for the traffic and state of the roads I would be consigned to treadmill running whilst out here, fortunately the hotel has a great gym that is hardly used

Dee_N profile image
Dee_NGraduate in reply to Berksrover

Understandable! I’ve been to India a couple of times before and it is madness!! Enjoy a few curries for me! My fav 😉😉
