Whoop Whoop I have Graduated :~)

Soooo So happy never in a million years did i think i would complete this, It has taken me longer than the 9 weeks due to flat feet, running like a spanner, injuries (im definitely not a natural runner lol) , gait analysis, appropriate trainers and then changing to a treadmill because of feeling self conscious running outdoors. Although I have not completed 5k in 30 minutes I have managed 3.5k and did feel like i could have continued. Now to carry on all the good work and try to get that 5k in 30 mins. I would like to thank everybody in the group for all their advice don't think i would have persevered without you guys. xx

Thank you I will. Got that buzz now xx

Congrats ellsbells71! You must be over the moon. I have just completed W9R2 this morning and have my "final" run lined up for Friday. I'm nowhere near 5km but I really don't care, I'm just so chuffed to have got this far. Isn't it also a great feeling to want to continue to try and crack that elusive 5k after you've graduated? Brilliant news, well done!!
