Did it!

Woo hoo! Completed Week 9 run 3!!! When I started c25k on 4th March this seemed so unattainable. An overweight 62 year old with an arthritic knee, surely I was being overambitious. No. It's amazing what can be achieved if you decide you can do it. The early runs were so hard then it all fell into place. My knee is much better, to my total surprise. Fitness has increased, weight is about the same (it's all muscle now πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) and I'm so pleased with myself!

Now for the next step. Breakfast!

The idea of a paddle appealed but the tide was out, didn't really fancy a mud bath! πŸ˜‚

It really is lovely. I'm two minutes walk from the river and run along the grassy path below the sea wall which takes me through countryside. Very lucky to live here!

It is amazing, isnt it, but you did it. I am slightly older, but no dodgy knee, and had to ignore all pals saying β€œyou are too old/you’ll hurt your knees” and so on. But we are not. Well done and be an inspiration for others now.
