C25k Graduate. Who, me? YES, Me!!

Well, I did it!! I've completed the Wk 9 challenge!

Wasn't my best run; for some reason, even though it's what I've been working towards for 9 weeks, I just wasn't enthusiastic this morning and even thought about leaving it another day but decided that's the slippery slope! At least the sun was shining so I really had no excuse.

Went a completely different route just to mix it up but hadn't realised there were a lot of long slopes along the way which I could have done without! In retrospect, it probably wasn't that hard but I just didn't seem to have my rhythm today. Still, I managed 4.68km in 32.03 so I'm pretty pleased with that. I had hoped to do a little more but started to feel a tweak in my lower back and decided that it wasn't worth the risk.

BUT - I've graduated!! I set myself the goal to complete it by Christmas and I've achieved so much more than I ever thought possible when I set off on Week 1 and ended up gasping and exhausted!

I've run for over 30 mins, and further than 5k.

And I'm chuffed to bits!
