Yesterday - Week 9 run 3 ... in the bag!!! Done and dusted. Started couch to 5k on the 3rd December last year, had some repeat weeks early on but as the programme went on, no repeats --- and no stoppages at all. So determined each time I set out to 'not stop' part way through ... as much of a mental challenge as anything, especially as the weeks progress. Final few yards yesterday was great as a group of people who were walking towards me said hi ... it was a local doctor I knew. His face was a picture!! He knows I've lost over eight stone. Did the Couch programme as a challenge to keep fit. The running has massively improved my stamina in my Rosemary Conley exercise classes. A few weeks ago ran round Ramsey Park in the Isle of Man, which was a nice change. Love the music in week 9 ... but may put my own music together. Nice to change routes from time to time ... going to explore Lancaster Canal in the next couple of weeks. A big thankyou to my mentor Debs who has given me words of encouragement ... when I thought I couldn't do certain weeks. Spread the word ... the programme is amazing. Now got my sister and niece doing the programme. Great to inspire others to join!
