Another oldie past the finishing line!

Just come back from W9R3 this morning and can’t wait to tell you all! I expected a shower of fireworks to appear on the C25K app! I’ve done it! It’s been a bit up and down - took a break and repeated a week because of an arthritic hip, then did the same again because of a cold. But today was fine, though windy. I’m very conscious that this is not the end but the beginning and thinking about how to motivate myself now 😊

There’s a pinned post on here for December graduates. Just leave a comment on there saying you’ve completed the programme and you’ll be rewarded soon after with a beautiful Graduate badge next to your name. 🏅🏅🏅 Well done again! 😀👏👏

Congratulations! Good thinking that it’s the beginning... consolidate and then find your next start line. The ups and downs on the way just demonstrate how strong you are... if it was too easy we’d be trampled in a stampede of runners every time we went out! Celebrate this well and enjoy your future running adventures

Thank you UNM - and thanks for all your encouragement along the way - it made a big difference. I think C25K is as much a mental feat as a physical one!

Well done and know what you mean about unplanned breaks. Hope to do the same later this morning but as it'll be daylight probably won't see the fireworks.

I hope you feel them though, Oldish - go for it and good luck!
