Week 3 finished!!!

Armed with the whistle we set off. I'd forgotten that notpheidippides' hearing isn't so good and he had difficulty hearing the signal to walk when I blew gently so in the end it had to be a full emergency style whistle! The dogs in the park took no notice thank goodness:-)

We passed one of the dog walkers 3 times and each time it was whilst we were walking - he never saw us run so must have thought we were a bit odd kitted out in running gear for a walk.

I managed the run with no problems and am really pleased that I'm much less breathless during and after. I think I've worked out a breathing pattern...for now. What will happen as I (hopefully) get faster I don't know.

Looking forward to Friday and W4R1...did I really say that?!

Good job! Hope there's no noise abatement society representative in your park! :D

Well the gardeners were around but too busy on their mobiles or playing on the outdoor gym facilities.

That's good to know someone else is in the same place. Let's hope we continue together.
