I finished today with a very lovely 32 minute riverside run here in New Zealand. I've moved home from England after four brilliant years abroad so my final two weeks of C25K were a little disrupted. However, despite some 2 and 3 day gaps between runs instead of 1, I kept going and clocked up week 9 run 3 today. (Actually, I think the longer rests might have helped me get through the last two weeks as my muscles had more time to recover.)
Starting C25K before I left England was great for me, because it gave me something to focus on during the long rounds of teary goodbyes and packing up my worldly goods. If anyone else is coming up to a messy transition period, I would really recommend C25K as a way of keeping you sane.
I actually cannot believe I have finished. I think I've probably never done this much regular exercise in my life... if anyone out there has any doubt, this really does work.
Thanks to everyone who regularly writes on the boards, they've been such an inspiration. I'm going to start recording times to get up to 5k (currently only covering about 3.5k) and then, well I guess it'll be to 10k and beyond.
