I've only gone & done it!!!

II'VE DONE IT! I've just finished W9R3! Wow! can't believe I've finished the whole programme! I've never stuck to a whole exercise programme in my entire life and now I've done it at the grand old age of 48!

And I managed my final run in typical style, getting lost off course & having to go up a couple of monster hills at barely above walking pace to get back on track. The rest of the run I felt fit and ran pretty well and it was a grand run through woods and across the moor in brilliant sunshine with the dog enjoying pretending to 'kill' rocks whilst waiting for me to catch up!

When I started, I swore I wouldn't be sending off for the badge as I thought it was too cheesy, but now all I can say is "BRING ON THE CHEESE!" Not only am I sending off for the badge but I'll also be buying the T shirt and wearing it with huge pride!!

Thanks to everyone on this site, it's so supportive and invaluable in keeping me going. To everyone who's still working through the programme - keep going. The sense of pride & acheivement at the end of it is priceless!

  • Congratulations, it's a fantastic feeling isn't? At the start, when you're reading these blogs you can't imagine running for 30 minutes non-stop and then miraculously, 9 weeks later, you can! I think it's witchcraft ;-)
