C25k completed today

Delighted that I have finished the 9 weeks challenge in 10. W9R3 done this morning.

I couldn’t have done it without Laura’s guidance & encouragement as never thought I would be able to run at 74 yrs. Always said I couldn’t run! I didn’t manage the 5k as a bit slow though hope to improve & look forward to my first park run

Fantastic stuff! Congratulations- if you couldn't run before you certainly can now! Amazing at any age but at 74 just wow- good luck for the park run, sure the 5k is just around the corner.

Well Done you. I, also 74, graduated yesterday. Glad to see there are several of us Silver Shufflers out there. Great feeling isn’t it.

Slow is good. Park run volunteers are such a great audience. They would carry you through with their cheers.

They did me. Volunteer first perhaps as a marshal? Scout out the lie of the land. Keep it up and keep enjoying it.
