Well, it's taken five days since my last run, but I finally finished W9R3 today. It was an outstanding feeling of elation and success. For music I chose The Who, Who's Next album that has two of my favourite tracks. It begins with Baba O'Reilly - made famous as the opening tune to CSI New York, and ends with Won't Get Fooled Again - the theme song to CSI Miami.
Towards the end during the last minute, when Sarah was congratulating me for running for 30 minutes, the last album track had just started. I was not tired at all, and pushed through to the end of the song, a total running time of 35 minutes, and properly prepared for the next part of the journey.
I will look on the forum again to see how to request a Graduation Cert. I wish to thank every member on here who has encouraged me both by responding to my posts, and in creating their own which I have always found inspiring. I also know how I need to prepare for park runs, having attended my first on Christmas morning. A lot of work to do there. I have defeated Type 2 Diabetes and lost a stone in weight. I said it before but thank God for the NHS and for all the staff who work there. What a fantastic institution. We are very fortunate indeed to live in a country that maintains that institution.
Best of luck to all my fellow couch25K runners. Have a great 2019
