Graduation

So pleased to have graduated my #C25K - final run this evening! It’s been a hard slog, 9 weeks ago I thought I was going to die after struggling to run for just 60 seconds on my first run - cannot believe how far is have come in such a short space of time. Extremely proud of myself even tho so know I need to improve on my speed!

Going to do a few ‘free runs’ for 2 weeks is so then hitting the 5k to 10K programme! 🏆🎓

Congratulations. Extreme heat, tail ends of hurricanes, cold snaps, late heatwaves... the weather couldn’t have thrown more at runners this year...and there you stand, victorious. Celebrate long and hard. Enjoy the freedom of consolidation and then that journey to 10k... the pace will come.

Ooo good luck tomorrow on your last run!!

I think a couple of weeks outside the structured ritual of a disciplined routine will work wonders before aiming for 10K!!
