Wow did it - the whole thing W9R3

Wow, just wow, didn't think I would stick to this, let alone complete the course.

I went to the local country park for my last run, bit of a walk there, but I wanted to try it out.

Haven't hit 5k yet, but it's come in at 4.9k . It wasn't easy but I did it.

So can I carry on posting in here.

Think I'm gonna carry on with the 30min runs till I get 5k in bag. I like the idea of the Brighton 10k run next year...

Anyway

Cheers

Dooze

Congratulations Dooze.... that face says it all really! Can totally appreciate the sheer elation...!

That’s what I did for the first two months after graduating... kept bashing out the 5K’s, chipping away at the times and finally went sub-30:00 this week.

On a 5K > 10K training programme now and already feeling comfortable with how it’s progressing.

Well done.... keep it up!

Fantastic....graduation for you🏆

Just saw your most recent post and realised I’d missed this do wanted to congratulate you here. What a great photo! I’ve heard the Brighton 10k is a good one: my cousin suggested I travel down and run it with her next year. I might just see you there!!

Oh my, well done you. I have W9R3 to do at the weekend and aiming to make it a parkrun event. Like you, not sure I've actually quite hit 5k yet but must be pretty close. Let's hope it's raining!! Keep running and again well done.
