Hi there

I graduated yesterday morning and so delighted as was my 3rd attempt having got to Wk 8 twice before but had to stop for health issues

I’m 58 and run really slowly but planning to consolidate now for a while and hope to get further in each 30 minute runs- thanks Fiona

Thank you!! Just shows how well the programme works - I only repeated two runs, but had some minor surgery in week 4 and slipped on the ice bumping my head in week 7! This forum has been great too and really helped with motivation, so thank you to all the admin 👏🏻

Apologies for being brief. I’d already posted about completing this morning. Feeling rather euphoric and grateful for people like you who’ve helped me on my way.

Instructor57 profile image
Instructor57Administrator in reply to Missmeadow

No problem, the thing is no admin in the team will catch every single post on the forums!Which is why we have a dedicated badge post each month so this can often be the first time we are aware that someone has completed the program 🙂

So, very well done , it's a great achievement, enjoy your running future 🙂
