I am buzzing!!!

Finally got round to completing my third run of week 9 today and to say I was emotional was an understatement. Having started C25K in January as an over weight asthmatic felt like I was about to climb Everest. I'm still asthmatic and no doubt overweight but I've proved to myself that anything a possible. Where'd I get this 'Graduate' badge everyone's harping on about πŸ˜πŸ‘ thanks again for all your help

Sounds great to me! Virtual Uni... virtual SU bar! 🀣. My dad always used to brew... must have a go one day.

It is definitely worth it. I'm pretty sure my current brew is nicer than any of Lanarkshire's pubs

Thanks, it didn't really hit me as being a huge achievement until my cool down and I started thinking about week 1 and how I was struggling to run a minute. This forum is amazing for keeping going.

Super well done

I also graduated today

Amazing feeling
