Graduation

So, finally completed my W9R3 this morning and am so proud to have done it. A couple of hiccups, my app crashed some time before halfway and I realised I hadn't had an update from Laura for ages but luckily I had Map My Run going so knew where I was and was able to fast forward on the app to the right place! I actually felt really good and have found the trick to my breathing is just breath as I need to and not count breaths, much better. It was drizzling but I did 4.63kms so I'm happy with that. So pleased with my improved fitness and stamina and running on the flat is great, hills are still a challenge but I'm getting there slowly. Thanks to everyone on this blog that has liked and commented and those whose blogs I have read for inspiration. Everyone on here is a winner and runner, no matter how long you run for, it's about your own personal achievement. An inspiring and encouraging group of people, we can run the world together!!

Congratulations! The gremlins had one last go, but like you said, we are winners, and winners don’t quit. Hills are still my nemesis too, but we know we will get there! Have a great celebration day 🍾🍾🍾
