I'm so happy....that is an understatement actually....I'm ecstatic 9 weeks ago I never in a million thought I could run for 30 minutes. I have had an exciting journey from September 2012. I had a gastric bypass op and have dieted and exercised since then. I started C25K in February and finally finished this evening. I also started 5x50 in March and my whole life has changed so much.
My attitude to diet and exercising has changed so dramatically, but I love the changes. I never completed anything in the past. I would start a diet or an exercise plan and then after a few weeks it would (or rather I would) stop I wasn't sure I would complete this programme, but with the help and encouragement from friends and family has been fantastic.
But the biggest thank you goes out to you guys....with out you it would have been impossible. I really mean this. The encouragement and support goes such a long way to whether you do or don't finish. I not going to say fail...because everyone who starts the programme is a star...even if you don't finish first time round, you come back and try again. This is down to this site
My husband has been a star throughout, and he even had a bottle of champagne in the fridge for when I came home It was a lovely surprise!
The run was great and I even improved my time I still don't know how much I run exactly but we think it's around 4 kms. I am getting a garmin for my graduation pressie One of the other great things about my run today was that I could wear my 5x50 t-shirt on my run. It arrived this morning, so the whole of Menen now knows about the challenge ( well not the whole, but they will do soon )
I am going to do another week of Laura and 30 mins and then go on to the C25K+ Again a big thank you and sloppy kiss to all you great running buddies out there.....thank you xxxxx
