Hooray! I have finished Week 8. Third time lucky for Run 3. It was quite warm and I had consumed a couple of glasses of wine after a baptism yesterday, but I remembered the comments people made on my last post and tried to run even slower!
I don't have a heart rate monitor, but just slowed until I could continue without feeling that I was about to collapse. I still found it a struggle but I did finish the run at least. Surprisingly, my average pace ended up being slightly faster than usual. About 10.15 I think. I guess that I normally start off too fast and exhaust myself! Or maybe I just wear myself out with brief speedy spurts to avoid menacing mutts!
I have no idea how many attempts each week 9 run will take me. I so want to graduate though!
