Completed!! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Week 9 run 3

Really happy that the weather was good this morning for me to finally complete the programme. It has taken me longer than the 9 weeks to finish but I guess that doesn’t matter. As I hadn’t run for almost 2 weeks, I did feel like I was a little bit slower. I managed 3.82km in the 30 mins with a pace of 7.55km so I am very happy considering the year I have had, my on going treatment and that I couldn’t run at the start.!!

It really is a fantastic program.

What’s next? I can see talk of consolidated runs? So is it ok for me now to just run πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ once a week? I cycle too to keep up my fitness?

I dedicate this run to my dear friend Sarah who sadly lost her fight with cancer yesterday. She was a great runner and a truly lovely person. I am so sad at the moment but know she would have been very proud of me completing & achieving this.πŸ’•πŸ˜žπŸ˜€πŸ’•

Thank you so much. We supported and worried about each other through our treatments for the last year or so. Definitely left a hole in my heart but I know Sarah would not want me to be sad. So I will try not to be. 😒

Hoping to do next run on Sunday.

You feel like a new friend to me already. πŸ’•xx

Well done Angie.... so very pleased that you have graduated... it is an emotional run anyway and sure would have been x10 for you.

What a lovely thing to do to dedicate to your friend, so beautiful. I am so sorry for your loss though too. What a remarkable thing to do, to still feel like getting up and out. Hats off to you.

Congratulations on your graduation. A fully fledged runner now. Hope you wear your badge with pride! πŸŽ“ πŸ€—πŸ’•

Thanks my lovely for your kind words. I am πŸ’“ heartbroken πŸ˜”.

I also wrote earlier, don't know where it went....

I am so sorry, heartbreak is so painful. Hopefully we can help keep you going, it's such a lovely group, so.always shout up if we can help in any way.

I also said that I would stay with the same frequency that you have been running at, where you can. They say you keep your form for 2 weeks and then after that it starts to reduce, but only slowly. I think for you, anything you do is amazing so just do what you can when you can xx

Congratulations Angie09, what an amazing achievement, sorry to hear that you lost your close friend, I’m sure she would be extremely proud of you, well done. You can do your consolidation run’s as often as you like, I run twice a week and sometimes on the weekend. The Nike Run Club app is very good for those, free coached runs of various times and distances......πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ…πŸ₯³πŸ₯³
