Couch to 5K

Graduation day....with a little help from Frosty!

Yay! I graduated! Very early this morning, I set off under gloriously blue skies and bright sunshine. Along the canal I ran, ducklings, geese and coots for companions. I felt summer might finally be on its way...until Frosty the snowman came through my headphones! For some reason my "running" playlist had disappeared so I'd selected "shuffle" to save time. I had to run listening to Christmas songs for most of the 30 minutes whilst sweating like a piglet (use a fiddly armband which I can't undo whilst running). Anyhoo, not sure why but somehow my run went very well and time flew.

I really want to thank you all for your inspiring blogs and encouraging words. I spend an inordinate amount of time on this site and love reading you all. It 100% helped me get to graduation and will no doubt keep me going when I falter.

Off to create my running playlist, leaving Frosty behind til December!

LOL! Great blog, Stephanie! Please do let us know how you get on from here. Are you going to do B210K?

Congratulations on graduation!


Hilarious! There's nothing like listening to 'club tropicana' during christmas time, as I have found out!


Congratulations on graduating - it's a great feeling. Wouldn't worry too much about the Xmas thing, there is around 166 days to go - you've just started earlier than anyone else!


Congratulations and well done you! I did laugh at you finishing to Frosty the Snowman! 2 weeks post graduation I have yet to let go of my podcast comfort blanket. :-)


Lol. Congratulations on graduating. Lol to the shuffle songs,.


Well done, that's brilliant, loving the Christmas songs in July!! :-)


Thank you so much! I tried to leave individual comments as they came but they would not publish for some reason, which I didn't realise straight away so doing a group one now.

Grammadog, congrats! No B210k for me yet as I am still looking for the elusive 5k, ha! Getting closer but ever so slowly and still just over 1k to cover in the magic 30! I'm going to start intervals so I can improve my speed.

Thanks for your lovely replies and have a great week-end!:)
