All done!

I completed the c25k tonight, w9r3... Done! I feel like this has been a massive leap forward for me, I started the programme not sure that I could finish it, and it still amazes me that I can now run for so long without gasping for breath!

My aims for the future are to get quicker, and maintain my enthusiasm whilst training for a charity 10k I have entered in September. Oh, and to stay injury free, which I know means sensible progression in my training, but I am determined to complete 5k in the next week or so, as I didn't make it in my 30 mins, the closest I got was 4.25k.

Thanks to everyone who posts on here for providing advice and motivation to continue when your mind and body is telling you that you can't do it, and to anyone in mid-c25k-journey, keep the faith, it works!
