Week 9 Third Run

β€’19 Replies

That's it πŸŽ‰ I completed C25K.

Started this workout on 1 October and today 30 November (St Andrew's Day) as I'm Scottish I finished it.

What a beautiful day πŸ˜€ overcast and threatening to rain all the time I was running, but it didn't come to anything. I got to the end of my 5 minute brisk walk at the end of the run and took a rest. Just as I started walking back the heavens opened and the rain didn't stop till I got home. Needless to say I was soaked, but I didn't care, because I had just completed C25K something I never thought I would.

Going to keep doing 30 minute walks for the next couple of weeks until my ParkRun on 15 December.

Thank you one and all for all your encouragement. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘

Oh and an extra benefit of this program was that I lost 2st 2lbs 😊

Thank you so much. I feel brilliant, even though I got home soaking wet πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

You will get to this stage too. Take care and gat back to full strength again πŸ˜‰


Congrats!!!! Over 2 stone weight loss too, that’s great. I’m always tempted to just eat even more! Park run is great, I wish I can do more of them.

Thanks AlMorr, Happy St Andrews Day to you as well. I've left a message on the November Graduate post.

Feels such an amazing achievement.

How do you find the Administrators?

in reply to BlueCal52

No problem with the administrators, they are really a nice group of people who do all the work of C25K for the love of running, helping and advising such people as you and me on their running 9 weeks or more journey of C25K until they graduate. 😊 πŸƒ πŸŽ“


Well done!!! Amazing achievement


Aw, I am so chuffed for you! You have been a real inspiration, I did W7 R2 today in the colΒ£ windy Aberdeenshire countryside. Enjoy the rest of St Andrew’s day xx

Thank you.

No plans as such. Nothing really happens on St Andrew's Day. I'm still watching what I eat, so no big celebration πŸ˜‚πŸ€£


Congratulations! Great job on the running and the weight loss too. Enjoy celebrating your amazing achievements, and that parkrun too.

Huge congratulations. I will think of you as I push through the remaining weeks.

Fantastic! What a great way to celebrate St Andrew's day. I'm hoping to be not too far behind you πŸ˜€


Many congratulations on your graduation fellow runner.
