Well, I've had lots of weeks off and I've not counted how many it is, but certainly many more than 9, largely due to holidays, family and laziness, but at last I have graduated!
It didn't really sink in last night as I was on a downer - had a crap day at work, had wanted to run outside but it was torrential rain so had to head to the small staff gym and do it in front of colleagues, found a hole in my leggings (right in the backside of course) and so had to wear the top I had brought to wear afterwards which was skimpy but covered said backside (and the ever expanding hole), my speed went from slow to slower, had words with the other half since he had had a crap day as well ... but after all the whinging, I did it!
Now I am in a more positive mood and feel very pleased with myself, and I am smiling as I type this! Thanks to everyone who blogs for being so supportive, I am a bit of a lurker, but have had lots of support over the long weeks.
Now to improving speed ... I will get to 5k one day! But first off to the beer festival tonight to celebrate my success
