Wk9 R3... Done! ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŽ‰

So happy to say... Iโ€™ve completed c25k! ๐Ÿ˜†

Itโ€™s been an incredible journey & I feel so proud to have done it!

5k in the bag today 37mins ๐Ÿคฉ

This run was the hardest of the week, but I got there, Iโ€™ve gotta give it to Jo Whiley, sheโ€™s been my rock! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Itโ€™s been a bit of a rollercoaster in places... letโ€™s not talk about week 6 ๐Ÿ™ˆ but Iโ€™ve genuinely loved the experience, and the feelings of achievement that come with each run!

Iโ€™ve felt myself becoming stronger & Iโ€™ve also found it to be such an escape from the every day pressures of life, I just feel like Iโ€™m winning all round ๐Ÿคฉ

My whole family run, & Iโ€™ve dabbled with running in the past, But Iโ€™ve always given up... not any more! ๐Ÿ™Œ

This group has helped me so much, itโ€™s been an incredible support & I canโ€™t thank everyone enough, for the advice, laughs & kindness theyโ€™ve shown ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ I honestly donโ€™t know if Iโ€™d of got through it with out you guys...

From the bottom of my heart, Thank you ๐Ÿ’›

Happy running everyone โœŒ๏ธ

'whole new lust for life'๐Ÿ‘Œ.... totally agree with that feeling. Hated running before, so much so that I'm not even sure why I wanted to start this. I have had successes at other sports, many moons ago, but nothing has captured my enthusiasm like this since, and it's definitely filtering into other areas of my life ๐Ÿ˜Š

Have yourself a great weekend!

That successful sporty streak has found you again! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ™Œ

I agree the feel good definitely filters in to other areas of life! The high you get from the endorphins is great! I think itโ€™s like therapy as well as a work out! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ™Œ

Enjoy your weekend too! ๐Ÿ˜Š
