Week 8 complete !!

Finished Week 8 run 3 today and felt strong. Tuesday's run went OK but I was glad to hear Laura's voice after 28 minutes and stopped running ASAP!!! Today though I ran inside on a cool running machine in the Hotel where I was staying ( it had fans on it to cool you down !!) it also had a 5k route on its program so I decided to take the challenge. 31 minutes and 5k later I was done (and could have gone on a little longer to be honest). This Couch to 5k plan is really amazing so for anyone out there who is finding the early weeks tough KEEP GOING, it does get easier if you stick to the Plan !! Good Luck YOU can do it !!

When? I've just finished W7R3 and I was desperate to hear Laura (admittedly I had lost her but mapmyrun was still on, so I had to look at that). I always seem to finish on an uphill.
