penultimate run of C25K W9 R2

wow, already, seems like only yesterday, but wow only yesterday I couldn't run and now well am doing great with the club or on my own :-)

Today was a very good run, there is a fair in Exhibition Park where we run, so the cows were cordoned off, tricky little bottleneck there!

Today I didn't want to be left so very far behind, so I kept up with the stragglers all the way around, have found that pushing myself like this makes me feel kinda sick anybody else get that?

I got my official yellow t-shirt today and very proudly wore it.

About 3/4 of the way around felt like stopping because of upping the pace, however, decided to keep the guy in front an arm's length in front (he's new too) and follow the advice I gave him (if it get's too much, head down, look at feet, count 1..2..3..4) as usual one of the stronger guys came back looking for me, almost ran past me bless, wasn't as far back as he expected, we talked about pace setters and I pointed to the guy in front of me, said he had been mine all the way around, he pointed to the one in front of him and said give him a go...I couldn't he was setting too fast a pace, but hey I would try... and the legs loved it - away they went, wow! what a lovely lengthy stride, why can't I do this all the way around? Trouble is the breathing wasn't too good, and the guy I passed didn't want to be last gave it everything he had and left me woefully behind, still a very, very good run, I can't imagine not running now, just have to work on that amazing stride that I know I have but appears to be a tad shy :-)
