Thanks for all your good luck messages yesterday, as planned, (well a bit earlier than planned) 5.30am I got up, dressed, big cuppa T and a banana and out I went.
I'm normally an evening runner so was surprised at how stiff I was this morning so had a really long warm up then off I went down a long tree lined road so although the sun was in the sky i was running in the shade and there was a lovely breeze. I was also surprised at how many people were out at that time, running, walking, taking the dog out...
Anyway I did it, I've finally completed week 9, nowhere near 5k in 30 minutes but that was never my aim, I only ever hoped to be able to run to catch the bus and I think I could do that now
When I started I was determined to complete the programme in 9 weeks but as time went on and a bad chest infection, family commitments, and aching limbs got in the way I was so disappointed to be missing weeks, now I've completed it I realise that it really doesn't matter how long it takes, how fast I'm going or how far I can run, the thing is Im out and running and loving it which is more than I could do before I started, that w1r1 was a disaster!
So on wards and upwards with no plan now except to just enjoy running for now.
Thanks for all your support, happy running
