I did it!

I did my final run this morning. I can't quite believe that I completed the programme - I guess that is testimony to how well designed it is!

Consolidation runs start on Monday - it will be great to still be part of this lovely, supportive forum.

They're in the washing machine already! I had to go 'off piste' to avoid ice and a couple of other runners 😂

Tandrageegirl, is that after the place where the crisps are made?

I do. I am in Surrey - at least it is flatter than Tandragee ....

Yes that's a mighty hill in Tandragee lol

When was the last time you got back?

Not long ago then.

Clare Glen is really nice.

A good spot for a run, apart from the hilly bits!

Jimtom
Jimtom in reply to tandrageegirl

That's true, but the hilly bits make it challenging I'm sure.

A step too far for me right now!

Sure, just enjoy the running, it doesn't really matter where you do it.

True. Good to be outside too.

It is..

I went through Tandragee today, it was deserted, but went past Clare Glen and it was packed.

tandrageegirlGraduate in reply to Jimtom

Not great, eh?

Jimtom
Jimtom in reply to tandrageegirl

No, it looked a bit dangerous, some standing to close to each other.

Well done, on to consolidation, enjoy it!

As a fellow Norn Irn-er... I just discovered recently there is a Virtual Run NI of 70 miles, called Bridging The Cities.... You do it in your own time and your own routes, during 2021... It's the distance between Albert Bridge and either Craigavon Bridge or New Bridge... And you get a medal when you finish 🏅 I'm part way through it! Just thought you might be interested... Something from home😊

I love the sound of that. Alas, I am not running at all this week. I had a twingy knee in my last week of C25k and then I fell on an icy footpath and landed on the same knee. I am gutted!
