I never cease to amaze myself with this programme, I am not in any way taking all the credit, or trying to sound cocky, just amazed.
Did the first week 9 run tonight with my wife (who is really pleased I have decided to join her in runners' world )
I didn't set any world records or anything but I did finish the 30 mins within a gnats whisker of 5k. Another three laps of our Honda and I would have made it! ok not quite, but close.
I set off as usual far too fast, and felt I was going to pay for it later, but strangely I managed to keep the pace up, and wifey was struggling to keep up (I tied her laces together when she wasn't looking). I thought she was right behind me, oops. I always slow in the second half so I was expecting for her to catch me, which she did, nearly . Anyhow I won! (not that we were having a race or anything )
Joking apart, I feel rather amazingly fit and well tonight, and that's a nice feeling looking back just a couple of months when I felt quite the opposite. Running back from the brink indeed!
Oh, I finally noticed that 'Julie' song, it is quite annoying isn't it?
Happy running folks,
