Week 7 run 3 - first solo run

I was without my fellow C25K’er (aka youngest son) today so this is the first time I have run on my own. He’s usually so supportive and always runs back and forth to check up I’m ok. He gives me a lot of confidence. Anyway, I did it ... and I feel so chuffed! I kept to my steady (snail) pace but even managed a sprint in the last minute. Bring on week 8. Nearly there!

Great job... not easy when anything you’re used to changes, bet you missed him heaps, and that he’s very proud of you even though he missed it. 6 runs to graduation... enjoy every step

Thanks, UnfitNoMore! Can hardly believe it’s only a few weeks ago I was struggling to run for a minute!

Yeah, me too... how great are we? I knew I’d run again, but doubted it would be so soon.

I’d recommend it to a friend!!! Gonna drag my neighbour out for my graduation run in a couple of weeks... he doubted it too and is always asking... told him when he dropped my apple juice off that I was nearing the end of the programme and he was gonna start soon.

Definitely UnfitNoMore! If the programme works for me, it can work for anyone! I hope your friend is inspired by you

If he’s not he’s getting his ass kicked every second for 60, with 7 more reps! He’s doing this!

Huge well done... relax into the longer runs, knowing that you are really capable of this :)

Thanks Oldfloss! I think I’ve caught the running bug!

Definitely - I never understood why people raved about running, it just looked like a hard slog. But now I know 😂
