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.
W9R2 Dreaming about my final Week 9 run....... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
And why not it’s an achievement worth trumpets and fanfares
🤣🤣🤣 you go girl! I think everyone graduating C25k deserves all the flowers 🌸
Thank you.. Mind I have got to do it yet!
Haha! Oh you’ll have to now or miss the party 😉
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.
Oh yes. The finish line to the start of your next running adventures is worth celebrating. Good luck and have a fabulous graduation 👏👏👏
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 👍
Hope to be there this week too. See you at graduation!
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.
Enjoy it’s the best feeling, I too had a brass band playing in my head 😂🤣
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
Good luck and congratulations on an amazing achievement. 🌺
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
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.
So close! I actually cant wait to read your last run blog! Have realy enjoyed your posts. Go out with a bang for sure! tears, snots, dance or even singing. Do the lot😂😘
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...
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.
I've just checked: people have donated £100 already!!! How amazing is that???
Oh that's done me the world of good!
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 🙂
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! 😉
Well now - You and your W9R3 deserves to be celebrated with as many yippees as you can should . Make sure a bottle of bubbles and your glass are already chilling in the fridge for your return . Congratulations 🎉 in advance . You deserve the prize ⭐️🏃♀️
Not what you're looking for?

Can’t believe that I’ve completed the final run this morning! Thanks to all who created this app and
hectic week and a half meant I didn't get the chance to run since last Tuesday when I finished week...
to the run....My thoughts/plan for this week were to keep calm, run my normal run like last week...
25 min runs to make sure I was ready, then completed week 8 without much difficulty.
Week 9 run 1...
Initially all I could think about when running was finishing that run, but now I am able to focus...
