OK, I've found out what is different. The weeks with 8k and 9k are both repeated now. That is a good idea.

It cuts it a bit fine for the race, but I could have run more today and have done it before so I think I will be fine

Delighted with my programme now.

Basically the marathon distance 42k๐Ÿค”approx., divided by a week and 2runs per day.So 6k/day for 21days.

Then easy 4th running week of 22k which includes a 10K readiness run test, a gym strength test. But plenty other strength and cross training in that easy week.

Really happy with this stuff and have found I am getting much stronger and hopefully much faster and lighter.

Go you Abi, keep leading the charge.๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Happy anniversary btw.๐Ÿ’‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿพ

I'm due to finish C25k in a few days and plan to do first Parkrun 1st September. I think I'll need encouragement to continue past that milestone. I presume its ok to pick it up a week or so late.

(I really can't believe how far I've come in a relatively short time with the help of C25k programme and the lovely people on the forum - I'll miss my new besty Laura though)
