YES!!! I did it!! Cracked Wk9 R3!!!! Woooooo-hoooooo!!

Finally managed to complete the programme today!!!! Started 26th August, so not bad :-). Checked my distance on RunKeeper - did 3.47km in 30mins, I'm not the fastest in the world, but just to be able to run for 30 mins non stop is incredible!! Now for consoldiations - I plan to add in some hills and try to get to that magical 5k, perhaps a Park Run in a few weeks. Thanks to everyone on this forum for the support - could not have done it without you!! :-D

Thanks TS! You've really made me smile even more now! I've only had diet coke tonight, but friends over this weekend and we'll be cracking a few bottles open, no doubt! Thanks once again for your support and inspirational posts - you really did pick me up that time I was wavering! Hope your post grad runs are coming on well and you're enjoying it - if your recent posts are anything to go by - you'll be up to 10k before you know it!! 🤸😀👍🍷🏃
