I've done it!! Graduation day!

Well, that's it, W9R3 completed this morning and I've graduated. I can't believe that just 10 weeks ago (I repeated week 5) I was struggling never thought I'd run 30 minutes at a time. Although I used to run in the past, life events and a 4 stone weight gain had my fitness well and truly out the window. And now, I'm back, having shed 2 and a half stone and still losing weight, I'm enjoying my running more than ever and can't wait to get back out there next week and carry on.

If you're at a point in the programme where you think you'll never run for 30 minutes, trust me, you will...and it'll feel great!

Well done! The sense of achievement is an amazing feeling isn't it?

Good luck with your post C25K journey. Do you have anything in mind?

Well, definitely going to be working towards a 10k either late this year or early next year, then MAYBE a Half Marathon next year 'sometime'. You?

I'll try and get a bit faster & go a bit further but nothing specific in mind. I'm happy to just get out for a run to be honest as its something I've never been able to do before! I challenge myself at Parkrun though, always got to run a bit further before a walk break!
