Did this run tonight and now can’t wait for Sunday to do R3. Really mean this when I say this forum has been a great help. I don’t write much but just love reading everyone’s progress and how great it makes everyone feel when they have done their runs. Have a great weekend everyone.

Connie1972Graduate

Hey Maddy! I finished w7r1, it was more difficult than my last run. I should really feel more excited, but I don’t. I’m so surprised on how far we’ve come. I never would have thought I could run 25 minutes. Good luck on your next run. Please continue to keep me motivated.

MaddyNed
MaddyNedGraduate in reply to Connie1972

HI Connie1972 I was exactly the same. I did W7R1 yesterday. I was physically and mentally exhausted and felt really flat. I’m at work for 2 days 13 hour shifts so can’t run now till Thursday. I’m making sure I eat lots of healthy food over the next couple of days to give me energy and get up Thursday and do R2. We can do this, next run I’m going to remember we are doing this together 👍🏃‍♀️Good luck and remember I’m right by your side xxx

Connie1972
Connie1972Graduate in reply to MaddyNed

That sounds good! More healthy food and drink plenty of water. We got this!

Connie1972
Connie1972Graduate

Thanks for encouraging me. Good luck with your two 13 hr. shifts. I did not feel to good about my last run. I kept thinking about it and thinking, so I decided to run for 25 minutes today. I aced it with no problem, I even ran faster the last 1 minute. I am so excited, this is how I wanted to feel on yesterday. Good luck on your Thursday run.

MaddyNedGraduate in reply to Connie1972

Thought of you this morning and it made me get up and go and do it and I did it. W7R2 done and it felt so much easier today and enjoyed it too.When is your W7R3 let me know how it goes and enjoy, we are doing well. It’s so funny how we have both felt the same on the last 2 runs xxxx

Connie1972
Connie1972Graduate

Hey! It is funny that we feel the same about our runs. It’s the truth, learning experience. I just finished run 3, it was so much better. I’m so glad we’re doing this, your going to ace this last run. I can’t believe our next step is week 8. I’m going to buy me something for 🎓 graduation. We’re so close. Keep me posted on the next run.

Good morning! Had a bad run, however I did finish w8r1. I think it’s having a two day rest time. Monday’s just aren’t good for me. I’m still excited I finished it. Will do better on the next run. Good luck ion your run. Let me know how it goes. You got this!😎😎😎

MaddyNed
MaddyNedGraduate in reply to Connie1972

Hi Connie1972 I did my W8R1 this morning but think I was tired. Like you I finished it and I’m glad I did but here’s hoping to a better R2 on Thursday. It’s funny it seems to be the first run of a new week that gets me, then it gets easier as the week goes on. Happy running tomorrow 👍xxxx

Connie1972
Connie1972Graduate

Thank you congratulations on the finish. I wonder why the beginning of the week gets us. Maybe we need less rest time, I don’t know. Just a thought. Good luck on your next run. We got this! Have a good work week!

Connie1972
Connie1972Graduate

Hey! I did run 2, it was so much better. I had so much more energy when I finished. I think I’m going to start going for a walk on Sunday's. Maybe that will help with the Monday run. Good luck on your run, as always keep me posted.

MaddyNed
MaddyNedGraduate in reply to Connie1972

Hia well done on R2 glad it was a good one. Mine went ok this morning but after my lower back is a bit sore today, had to put some ibrofen gel on it. My next run is Sunday so hopefully it will be better by then. Have a good R3 and yes a walk on a Sunday sounds good. Let me know how it goes.Not long now to graduation 👩‍🎓👩‍🎓xxx

Hi Connie well done on run 3, so close now to graduation 😀. I’ve just done run 3 today instead of yesterday to give my back an extra days rest. I should graduate on Sunday now. Let me know how W9R1 goes. What area do you live in, would be great if we were close by, I’m in Sale Manchester x

Connie1972Graduate

Hey Maddy! Just finished week 9 run 1, it was so exciting. I could have ran longer. How’s your back,? Good luck on run 1, you got this. I live in Michigan, can’t get together for a run.

Hi Connie I’m going to have to do my run on Tuesday now as my app stopped in the middle and I had no clue where I was up to. Feel a little disappointed about it but now I have to focus on doing it again. Can’t wait for Tuesday now xxx

Hi my running buddy, I did it 👍. Felt great running in the rain, felt so happy. My plan is to do the consolidation runs for the next few weeks then maybe look at the 10K app. I want to do a park run too. What are your plans? You have been a fabulous running buddy 💕xxxx

Connie1972
Connie1972Graduate in reply to MaddyNed

Not too far behind you as I’ll be finishing W4 on Monday. Without this app, sure I wouldn’t be anywhere near as motivated! Good luck with W5 R3!

MaddyNed
MaddyNedGraduate in reply to purplewalker

Hi purplewalker your right this forum is amazing and it does keep you motivated. Good luck with W4R3 on Monday and enjoy your running journey. C25K has been a brilliant program to follow. I struggled with the very first run and didn’t for one minute think I would be where I am now which is W9 R3 tomorrow morning. I will keep a look out for your posts and see how your doing. Happy running 🏃‍♀️👍xxx

Hey Maddy! Just checking on you! I think I’m going to try 10k program. I’m not going to start it until March 24th week. I ran 4 times this week. I’m going to rest this weekend. How’s everything going with you? That graduate badge looks good by your name. We did it!

MaddyNed
MaddyNedGraduate in reply to Connie1972

That’s brilliant well done you, I’ve ran twice and running tomorrow. I’m going to run a few more weeks for 30 mins and then start the 10K program. Your doing fantastic. We did do it and it feels amazing. As always keep me updated and have a great weekend x

Connie1972
Connie1972Graduate

Hey Maddy! Haven’t heard from you in awhile, I hope all is well. I’m doing good! I started the 10k program, I’m on week 3 run 3. I still like running, sometime, I just don’t feel like. I hope your still running. Looking forward to hearing from you!

MaddyNed
MaddyNedGraduate in reply to Connie1972

Hi Connie glad your doing well. Lovely to hear from you. I did 2 weeks consolidation runs and then I’ve struggled with a painful knee. I’m currently sat with it elevated. It’s driving me mad because I’m feeling rubbish mentally and my knee is stopping me running. It’s painful to walk on too and painful to touch. Going to see how it goes and then see a physio if it doesn’t get better. Well done on your progress your doing great 👍xxx
