Can't believe it! just come home from W9 R3 and so excited I couldn't wait to tell you guys! In fact I decided to push on a bit longer as run 2 was 30 mins but only 4.22k, and I've just managed 4.7k in 37 mins.
If you are starting this running lark from scratch rather than being vaguely fit already, then I assure you it can be done. It's taken me a bit longer than the 9 weeks as I had a C25k holiday when I went on holiday in September and was put off a few runs by hideous weather and the occasional bout of laziness, but I've done it, hooray !!!
When I started week 9 I got a bit anxious about what I'd do once I broke up with Laura, but reading other graduate posts has helped me formulate a plan. I'm going to push on for the 5k and then it's off to park runs for me (can't believe it's me typing this stuff!). Was aiming to start them in January, but since I was nearly at 5k today, I think I'll make that December
Thanks to everyone on here for your wonderful blogs and advice, I couldn't have done it without you all. Will let you know how the park run goes
