You just need to keep doing them now. When I graduated I was OK for a couple of weeks, then started to lose focus a bit, found it very easy to say I will delay today’s run until tomorrow etc, as you have lost the structure of C25K. However about three months ago I switched to running on three set days (all things permitting) and since then the runs have been very regular. Anyhow, good luck with future consolidation runs!

Well done! I thought of you when I headed off out this morning for my run, hoping you’d be doing the same, so I’m really pleased to see you did it!

Good plan! It’s much easier if we have a set routine, it’s too easy to give ourselves an excuse not to run otherwise. Keep at it, and keep posting your news.

Will do and thanks again ,hope it all goes well with you

That’s lovely 😊 i really started to enjoy myself once I was in control of how long I ran and sometimes when it was going well ran a bit longer and if it was really tough walked a bit

Good luck with consolidation these runs will build on what you have done so far
