Yes, my canine coaches and I have now officially completed the C25K programme, and with a really great run, too! For some reason, which probably seemed like a good idea at the time, I decided to use a cross-country route to finish off in style. OK, so after a couple of days of heavy rain, it maybe wasn't the most sensible choice. But the sun was shining, a gentle breeze was blowing and we kept going all the way. We even got rather further than when I used the same route for W9R1.
So, liberally splattered with mud, with soaked running shoes and after inhaling quite a few bugs (newcomers, please take note - there is a reason why Laura says "breath in through your nose and out through your mouth"), I've achieved my goal, albeit a few weeks later than planned. It may be some time before I'm ready for Phase 2 (a 5k CaniX race), but considering the improvements since W1R1 - was it really that hard to run for 60 seconds? - I'll hopefully get there eventually.
In the mean time, I think it's time for some running-related retail therapy! Not just for me - the dogs are due some proper CaniX harnesses, too
