Week 9 run 3 complete


Morning! Completed the last run this morning. I am over the moon. I have never been one for exercise and stopped smoking last July. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could run 30 mins non stop (especially since gasping for breath on week 1 after 60 seconds!) thank you to everyone who has posted tips and advice. The motivation and inspiration have gained from this forum has been brilliant. Thank you

Look at this!...... you should be shouting it from the rooftops!.... Wow!.. I'm buzzing for you!.... Week 9..... You are a pro!..... Seriously well done to you!.... I will be knocking on your door for some tips!.... You must feel so proud... I'm proud of you and me and everyone who applies themselves to this... its no meat feat.... but here we are all running and achieving.... x


Hahaha - I am so so chuffed - and yes, for you also and everyone else getting their bum off the couch! It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life - exercise has never ever been my thing. I am going to be 50 this year and my diary was full of gigs to go to.... we managed two before lockdown and the rest are all postponed until 2021. So I decided I really wanted to say I did something before my birthday and c25k was it. I never imagined I would enjoy it/manage it/get a buzz from it/or even want to keep going but I do and it’s been a total game changer. So I’m looking forward to keeping going and challenging myself and reading everyone else’s stories of success, blips, highs and lows. Well done us - so so proud of us all! X 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

That’s brilliant!.... work took over my life but didn’t realise it until lockdown... so nice to get better balance and at the same time do something to improve my fitness levels... I’m a fair bit older than you but not doing too bad for an old lady 🤣

You’re right about it being a game changer!... completely! Keep posting .. love to read your progress 🏃🏽‍♀️👏x


Thank you! And you too - looking forward to seeing what’s ahead in the next few weeks! Keep running!


Congrats 🥳
