I've done it, today I ran run 3 of week 9 in the beautiful surroundings of the French Pyrenee's whilst holidaying with friends. It's been such a wonderful experience to complete the programme in such an amazing setting. One of my runs was quite challenging as it took me via road (I usually run on grass) and also up and down hills - I ached like mad the following day. However, the scenery took my mind off things and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed all three runs. I was also able to run in the mornings which helped as my energy levels seemed much better than running after work as I do in the UK.
My calves are developing a nice shape (they've always been straight up and down!) and my general stamina has vastly improved.
Onwards and upwards!
