Well I've done my first post-graduation run and have run faster and further than before, and felt great too! So week 9 wasn't a fluke, I really can run for 30 minutes!
One thing I have noticed, and which led to the camel question in my title is this; during the early and mid weeks of the c25k programme, I was drinking nearly all of my water bottle en route. However despite much warmer weather now, I'm drinking less and less, to the point that tonight I had one sip when I had about ten minutes left to run and that's all I wanted. I drank some more during my warm down and a bit more when I got home but trying to figure out why I'm needing less water. Is my body getting super efficient at sweating now I'm getting fitter? ...or am I turning into a camel?
