First consolidation run... πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I couldn’t decide what to do and panicked at the thought of freedom; so just went for week 9!

I loved this run soooo much! This has probably been my favouritest run in the whole programme! I just felt like I was happy and could breathe and could have kept going - what a great feeling! I wish they were all like this 😬

Anyways I decided to get to 5k before stopping - took a lil longer than my last attempt! But who cares! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

Consolidation runs are wonderful! The pressure is off...psychologically you know you can do it...they are there to be relished & enjoyed...the prize for getting through C25K 😊

Excellent, well done. Have you seen the C25K plus podcasts?

I think the stepping stone one is a consolidation run, and the others look interesting to πŸ‘πŸ˜

Well done. I spent a few weeks pottering about after graduation and I've recently discovered the Nike running app. It's got me a bit more focused.

I have the Nike app downloaded after a recommendation on here - almost used it today but chickened out! :)

I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry. Just enjoy your new abilities for a while and see where they take you (literally and metaphorically). If you do decide to give the app a go, I recommend the slow runs, or the 'just another run' to start with. I found they helped stop some bad habits from creeping in.

Great running... freedom can be a little scary, but you came up with a plan and executed it perfectly. Finishing that distance with some left in the tank just demonstrates how far you’ve come. There will be many more such happy runs.

You’re right, it’s amazing how far this programme brings you on. Those 60 second struggles in week 1 only seem like yesterday ☺️

Fingers crossed there will be maaaaany more!
