I did it!!!!!!

Week 9 run 3 done and done wooooooooooo! Can I have my shiny graduates badge :D

On the last two runs I have been keeping going past the 30 mins to get to 5k and did it in 37 mins so feeling great and have even signed up to do Leeds Abbey Dash in November. Does any one have any tips for working on speed as well as distance?

I haven't really written much on here but I wanted to say a huge thanks to those who have as reading everyone's blogs and tips has kept me motivated and also a huge thanks to Laura of course (although please sort out the music for week 8 it drove me mad) !!

  • Well done to you too!!!!! :)

  • Its an amazing feeling :)

  • Feels brilliant doesn't it? This new ability we have, it really inspires confidence.

    Congratulations and well done.

  • Congratulations, its a great feeling, just keep running and slowly you will get faster, i think the new podcasts may help us to run quicker, they should be out soon- hopefully ;)

  • Will they announce the release on here? :)

  • Well done Mrs Deadley !

    I'm sure they will announce the release on here and I'm surprised it is only week 8 music that drove you mad !! Although I am in a minority who enjoyed "You and Julie" !!!

  • God Julie really drove me mad! And that one "I'm gonna tell you something because its so true so true" or something like that ha ha ha

  • Hoorah to you! Great time as well.

  • I read on someone's blog posting that since graduating and to work on her speed, she was re-doing the Week 1 runs, but going faster during the 1 minute run intervals. That sounded like a pretty good idea to me, and next week I am going to do the same thing. At a faster pace, I am sure that it will feel like I never did the program.

  • Congratulations on graduating... A wonderful achievement, and the beginning of your running journey!
