So I've gone and finished my final run and graduated today yee haa!! Its taken me a while- about 12 weeks due to work commitments some weeks when I could only do one or two runs and then a couple if weeks ago I hurt my back so had to take a week off and build up to 30 mins.
But I've done it - I can't believe it, there was a definite whoop. little round of appluase for myself and of course a bit of a cry on the walk home! Then when Laura said goodbye I cried again. Whats that all about!!
I would just like to say this programme has been fabulous and it has changed my life [ooh teary again!] When I get up in the morning now and look out of the window, I don't just think 'oh what a nice day', I think 'oh what a nice day for a run!'
I feel so much fitter, I can run upstairs now without dying at the top, I don't feel as stressed, my mood is more even, my skin looks better and my headaches have gone. I feel a real sense of achievement and I'm dead proud of myself!
I am almost evangelical about this plan, I can't stop telling people about it and already 2 of my friends have started it, and have said that I've inspired them which is quite nice!
And of course a big thank you to you guys, who I don't know personally but I feel we all are sharing something special. When things have gone well the support has been amazing, when things have gone a bit rubbish, you've taken the time to help and support me [ooh cries again!] this is totes the best forum ever!
So C25K+ it is then! xx
ps I know my name is Barney but that is after my cat, I am actually a girl - you may have guessed that from the teary bits!!
