It was a humid wet day with non stop drizzle. For some daft reason I felt apprehensive as it was my last run but nevertheless, I just got on and ran. Once I got in my stride everything felt ok and despite the drizzle, I managed to run 2.5 miles stripping out the warm up and cool down walks. Now I feel chuffed that I’ve completed to program and wish to thank Laura, my coach, and all the other coaches for that matter, for their encouragement. The C25K program works and I would encourage anyone to do it. I even remembered to take a photo before my run!!

Nice one Dave, congratulations 🎉
Very Well done Vegan Dave, and thanks for the advice you've given. 👏👏🎉
Congratulations, amazing effort! I have one more run left and I’m planning to keep listening to W9R3 during consolidation as I’ll miss Laura a lot!
Well done Dave. I've been looking out for your post as we were both due to graduate today.
Thanks Tasha, I have to run Monday without Laura encouraging me. I’ll run the same route for a while to consolidate what I’ve done and build from there in a month or so.
I found it easy to run without the voice actually. But a watch is very useful to measure etc.
Yes, I use my watch and iPhone to check my times, and I’ve counted my steps per minute, I’m currently running at 168 steps per minute. I count every time my left foot hits the ground for 30 seconds (42 steps) then multiply that result by four which gives me my cadence of 168 steps a minute for both feet. It’s too difficult to count both feet for 60 seconds.
Congratulations 🥳🎉🥳🎉 You must be so thrilled. It’s a fabulous achievement 👏👏👏
