Week 9 Nearly there!

Finished my first run of week 9 today. I struggled with the three hills - 1 large one and 2 smaller ones but I made sure I took smaller, slower strides and still covered 4.64k in 30 minutes #c25k posted I was a graduate after my first run but officially I have 2 more runs to try and improve my time. I can't believe I can now jog for 30 minutes when some years ago I couldn't even run to the next lamppost after my house before I walked home thinking I could never do it. I am nearly there!

  • Absolutely brilliant! Well done, Ilovechocolate! Week 9 AND hills. You are a real trooper, I am a total wuss and avoid hills as much as possible in the Yorkshire Dales. All the best with your graduation runs, sounds like you will have no problems whatsoever getting there.

  • Thanks Soozz! Oh believe me I avoided every hill possible to start with. It was much easier going around the park and when I came to a hill on the runs , I turned around and headed in the other direction. Now the runs are longer, I don't have many routes to choose from that don't have hills and going around our small hilly park is very boring. I thought from the advice on here I needed to tackle them at some point.
