Today I graduated :) :) :)

I've just completed week 9 run 3...YAY me. After such a fab run on Saturday I'd been so looking forward to today's run BUT it was horrible!!!! Made it round but all I kept thinking was 'will it finish soon?'. Anyway, sitting on the couch typing this thinking 2 things 1) I am so proud of myself would never have thought I'd have got this far and 2) better get a wiggle on or will be late for work!!!

Now to think about my treat to myself and planning the next few runs!

  • Oh that's fantastic you've graduated well done!

    It's funny isn't it, when a 'bad' run is over we think of the good things, I know I do :)

    You've done brilliantly and are very inspiring :)

  • brilliant Ali :) just brilliant! Virtual hug of congratulations. Shame it was a tough one, that's ok it's just the way it was, the next run you know will be different again - you have graduated!!! You are a C25k graduate :) How very cool is that!

  • very cool indeed!

  • Well done, how exciting - graduating. Have lots of treats in celebration. (Ditto to what minuette and Bxster said). It looks like a great day for celebrating your run, enjoy!!!!!

  • Congratulations :-) You are amazing! I found my 3rd run of week 9 the hardest too. Onwards and upwards now :-)

  • Well done Ali! What an acheivement - keep us updated with your progress over the next few runs :)

  • Excellent, well done. Let us know what you new goal is going to be.....

  • Well done Ali

  • Wow - well done! :) definitely treat yourself!

  • well done. dont worry about the bad run. we all get them from time to time.

    whats next for you??


  • Congrats Ali. Keep on running...

  • HIp hip hooray and a fanfare of trumpets...congratulations Ali, that is fantastic. Hope you choose yourself a great graduation prize. Bet you wear that smile all day. :)

  • Thanks you lovely peeps. I have been smiling :) today and will be going out in the next few days to buy my treat. Am going to be very generous to myslef and why not as I've not wasted money on gym memberhsip, that I don't use, for the last 3 months. Something small & silver from Tiffany's me thinks (they really shouldn't have opened near work!!!!)

    Plans for the rest of this 2 x 30 mins and then plan a longer run to try and cover 5k but right now I just want my right shin / calf to stop's all achey and very restless. :(

  • Congratulations! Mmmm something from Tiffany's - that is well deserved! I am one run from graduating and will post a HUGE blog when done!


  • mine would have been longer but between getting up, doing the run and having to leave the house there wasn't time.

    Good luck with your final run! I'll be watching for your post :)

  • Well done!!! How fab to graduate! I am two runs off that point, though I have cheated a bit to get here (skipped a few podcasts) so as to be ready for Sport Relief this weekend. Enjoy your treat(s) - well-deserved!

  • Hurrah! Go you!!:0 :) It's funny how we underestimate what we can do but YOU DID IT!!! :)
