I can't believe it but there is a very high possibility I may very well graduate from C25K! I never dreamed so 8 weeks ago! Steve and I went for our beginning run of week 8 last night and we did it! I can not fully comprehend this morning that I ran 28 continuous minutes! I must say, each week takes me to running more then I ever have my entire life! It was a beautiful evening, not much of a breeze and it went well. I was fully ready for the 28 minutes to be over with and at the halfway point, I was relieved to know the second half always seems to go by quicker then the first half. This run was challenging, just as the others have been, but I finally see the glimmer of hope I will soon graduate from C25K. I had high hopes by week 7 or 8 I would not feel as challenged as I do and maybe I could pick up speed/distance. I realize for me, I am going from never running to learning to do it in 9 weeks and building stamina. Speed and distance will hopefully come with time as well as getting to the point a run may be somewhat enjoyable. I can only speak for myself, but this group has kept me going with all of the support and advice offered. I also see on the board, we have quite a group graduating at the end of the week! Congratulations to all the soon to be graduates!
