I havn't given up! It's just that our holidays have begun! I ran Wednesday morning for 33 minutes but then having rushed through a shower and breakfast we set off without touching a computer!
Last night here in Cornwall near St Cleer I ran my longest ever run! The Siblyback reservoir circuit is supposed to be 3.2 miles. I knew I'd have to walk a lot of it but wanted to give it a try. Counting the five minute walk I ran for 45 minutes and covered 4.26km. I can hardly believe it! NP who of course way way ahead of me clapped me in! I ran all but the last 150 yards The conditions were the worst Ive had to face so far. A strong wind which kept changing direction and a gritty and stony surface. Lovely scenery though. I could only do the 150 yard walk to the car as I then hadnt the energy to do anything other than flop onto my seat and drink a bottle of water. SO proud though
So still hoping to manage 5km for final run W9 R3 which will probably be on the towpath at Cambridge with runner son encouraging me. I rreally am hooked on this running lark! (NP is too).
