Well there have been many times over the last 9 weeks when I’ve seriously doubted if I’d get to the end of this programme (including this morning as I struggled up a particularly hilly bit!) - but I’m proud to be able to say I’m now a graduate! 😀
Couldn’t have done it without the support and encouragement I’ve had from reading this forum, and from Laura of course 😉
It’s a great programme and it really works! I’m very much not a ‘natural’ runner, and was pretty unfit at the start. I’ve even started enjoying my runs (well, bits of them!) and I definitely feel better for it.
Next steps will be to build towards the legendary 5k...I’m managing about 4K in 30 mins at the moment.
It’s also going to be a challenge keeping up runs when I start a 9 week placement next week (involving 4 hours travel a day..) - I’m thinking I might have to cut back to 2 short runs in the week plus a longer one at the weekend, but I’m worried I’ll lose my hard-won fledgling fitness.
Any advice on managing this appreciated.
Well done 👍🏆
