W9R2 Dreaming about my final Week 9 run.........

So at some time this week my final run of week 9 ... I am dreaming how to go about this quietly or with a bang ? ... I think I will do it with a bang in a quiet way ! I shall have Chariots of Fire playing for my last five minutes, ticker tape coming down from the trees and Michael Johnson and Paula Radcliffe to welcome me over the finishing line ...... All of this in my head ! Luckily I do not have a vivid imagine ! Happy running everyone.

And why not it’s an achievement worth trumpets and fanfares

I also have a feeling you are very near the end ! We could run across the finish line together ... Michael and Paula will be pleased to see both of us .

I was but have injured my hip so needing to rest for a bit!!! Sod’s law really as I was so close to finishing but got over enthusiastic with my kettlebells on alternative days! Couch rest for me for a bit 😩

Oh no , that is really bad luck! I have kettle bells in the garage as they are no good for hanging clothes on like running and rowing machines!Wishing you a speedy recovery . I will be standing next to Paula and Michael when you cross the line cheering you on ! Hopefully soon.

I hope you enjoy your final run of the program !I remember actually finding it quite emotional , for me it went really quickly as I was replaying the journey of the nine weeks in my mind and all the vrb's I had made on this forum 😁

Enjoy the run 👍

Don't I am not a woman who does tears and you have just bought a tear to my eye (don't tell any of the other posters! ) . I think I will do what you did, the highs and slows of my journey .. Thank you.

I don't know about you but even when I think about that last run in this chapter of our running journey , I just cannot believe I have actually come this far! Savior the run... and listen out for the cheers and trumpets , that will be me hiding behind the bushes to greet you at the finish.

Thank you I will. My head is so busy at the quiet of times, now a brass band has got to fit in it as well!... 🤣

Loved your comments about your last run …you must be feeling so proud .. you deserve all the fanfare and party 😊 after all your hard work …I’m sure we will hear it when you’ve completed your last run

Thank you . I did it!

Woohoooooo!!! WTF Mrsrun !!!! Definitely Chariots of Fire and plenty of ticker tape as you break through that ribbon I think 😀

I'm 2 runs behind you and hope to be breaking that ribbon myself on Friday, although my BP monitor detected a low heartbeat this morning again (59 bpm so only just bradycardic mind) so I'm hoping that it's just increased fitness levels and weight loss over the past 11 weeks and nothing more sinister alongside my borderline hypertension 🙄

Thank you. I hope your hypertension is ok. I have just looked into getting a health check as I never go to the doctors and have no idea about any health issues I may have... I do need to lose some weight . Good luck for two runs time.. I should be doing my final run of the plan tomorrow but not sure I will do it until Thursday as I have to work tomorrow and it will all be a rush as I do not run in the evenings !

I was blown away when I finished that last run, I never thought I’d get to the end! I put my certificate on FB so my friends could send me messages of congratulations ( how sad was I). It’s a great achievement, relish it x

MrsrunGraduate in reply to Lablove

And so you should be proud of yourself ! I do not do social media , apart from this ...... So maybe my certificate needs to be enlarged and flown across the local villages by a light aircraft ...... I wonder if I could light it up with neon lights!.. I would hate no one to notice ! Well done to you.

I think I should make sure my last run is somewhere , where it will go noticed.... I do run past lots of chickens and horses , they have been great supporters of my running efforts... They have never laughed once!

I'll be cheering for you! And you will be for me, just behind you...

I think I might go for Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss: it's the big theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey and it sounds to me like the sun coming out after a storm, or the moment when you get to the top of a hill and realise how far you've come against the odds. W9R1 on Thursday for me...

Mrsrun profile image
MrsrunGraduate in reply to Benben21

Now that is a piece of music to end on.... understated .. Not! You enjoy your W9R1 . I think I am edging for the final run to be on Thursday but not sure if I might have to do it tomorrow as I am so excited ... Don't mention hills , I am walking 100 miles the week after next , lots of hills!

Wow!!! Is that a sponsored thing? I've just posted on my FB timeline that I'll be doing the Parkrun in September and that anyone who would like to support this can make a small donation to a charity of which I am a trustee. It feels like the right kind of celebration to me. Most of my FB friends - anyone who's known me for a while - simply won't believe it, I suspect.

MrsrunGraduate in reply to Benben21

A sponsored thing !! No . A holiday 🤣 Well done to you for committing to a PR.. and for Charity . They will have to believe you when you finish !.

I've just checked: people have donated £100 already!!! How amazing is that???

Oh that's done me the world of good!

MrsrunGraduate in reply to Benben21

That is fantastic .. You have to keep running now!

Missed your post yesterday, well done! I can't wait to read about the finale 😉 have you got a day planned? Whenever you do it, I'll be cheering you over the finish line 🙂

MrsrunGraduate in reply to TooOldForThis1

Thanks. I keep telling myself Thursday will be the best day but I could do it before work in the morning tomorrow but it would be a rush ... Clearing up all that ticker tape is going to take hours... And fitting in the interviews with Michael Johnson and Paula Radcliffe..

Work should give you the day off for that, surly! 😉

I believe work have decided to give all the staff a day off when I achieve it...
