Wk 9 and 5K - I did it!!

Week 9 and on R3 I actually managed to reach 5K.

Ok it was 40 minutes but I did it and I feel great! I started the podcasts at the beginning of Feb and struggled to get past week 2 but thanks to my family and the support from reading the blogs from you guys I've got here.

Now all I need to do is graduate and carry on running, which I will do as I want to get to 10K in order to do a charity run next year. (Got a bit of time then to reach that goal!)

Is it just me or has anyone else felt quite upset to think Laura won't be a regular part of my life anymore? Maybe it was the emotion of finishing but I almost cried!

Thankyou C25K and Laura.
