W9R3 Drum roll please!

I did it. I had my doubts in the beginning but grew more confident with each run, each new week. So here I am at the end of week 9 and a Graduate :D My Husband always maintains that you never see a jogger with a smile on their face, you would have this morning. It'll probably be there for about a week.

Anyone who has any doubts about the efficacy of the C25K course, give it a go, it really does work. Read ALL the information that there is provided here, take it nice and easy (It's not a race) and just go out there and enjoy the feeling of freedom and exhilaration that running gives you. You wont regret it.

Well done! - what an awesome feeling and so great to hear how much you've enjoyed it! I love this forum too it has been my 'go-to' place when I need a little confidence boost.

Did you tell your husband yet?

Thank you, I'm still walking on air :D

I haven't told the husband yet. He's not been too good for most of Lockdown, worried, panicking and becoming quite depressed. as well as bursitis in his hip. I knew if I said I was going to do it that I would just add to his unease. He is coming out of it now, more so since he had his first vaccine jab and we go for a little walk around the block most days now. This is great as he had rarely been out at all.

I will tell him and I know he'll be happy (and surprised). I shall choose my moment ;) xx

Congratulations!!!!!! 👏 🥳🏃‍♀️

I missed your Graduation post 😮 a belated Congratulations to you Chrimson51 👏🏻👏🏻🏅🥳🥳

Try the Nike Run Club App for consolidation runs, lot’s of coached runs of various times and distances and it’s free too 👍

I think you’ll like it, I felt a bit lost when I completed C25k, I quite enjoyed the encouragement of a coach in addition to my playlist, so the NRC App, was just right, you can choose what you fancy doing. If you need to stop, it automatically pauses the workout for you and resumes it when you start running again. Also at the end of the coached run you can press the arrow and continue the run if you want it to last longer, and it will tell you the extra time and distance. 👍
