Over the finishing line ......... Yipeeeee

I completed wk9 run3 on Tuesday morning after getting up at 5.30 and then out runing at 6, never would have imagined that i would come to love jogging and be happy to get up early to make sure i got my training in. The c25k has helped and supported me, Laura and all of you who post your triumphs and hardships have helped and inspired me. I Needed to build up my strength physically as I was diagnosed with cancer in march last year and finished cancer treatment in January, as I have not worked for nearly a year i became quite week and had put a fare amount of weight on and suffered from fatigue due to treatment.

I wanted to be able to run (improve my health) and raise money for the charity that helped me during a difficult time, on week 1 i found it so hard but found strength from somewhere to listen to Laura and wow - now waiting for my 1st week 10 run. I now have alot more energy, feel better, feel happier and I love being in the c25k group, thanks to you all who have graduated and those in training.

I am so much better all round in a short space of time (i have now started loosing weight - bonus), its wounderfull, good luck with your running and i hope you get all the benefits associated with running that i got and more besides, the programme works so well, - keep to and you'll make graduation to......... ( I have a 8.5 mile run in June to do so will continue to look to the forum for inspiration and help along the way plus aot of LOL ing)
