My second stint as an undergraduate has now come to an end as I have today completed the third run of week 9. I'm pretty sure they won't let me have the badge twice (Graduate and Bar badge?) so I won't be making too much of a song and dance but it's fair to say I'm quietly well chuffed to have made it this far again. The biggest difference this time round is that all of my runs have been outdoors on the lanes around home, last year they were indoors at the gym and having done both I would recommend the outdoor life if you can. Some runs have gone very well, and some have been hard and a struggle to complete but I can say that all bar one were completed as per the schedule. The only missing run was week 4-3 where I went straight to Week 5-1 and it didn't seem to disrupt the plan at all. The other big difference is that I have a continuing goal this time, last year I graduated and went on holiday but this time I'll be continuing towards my half marathon goal later this year. I'm planning to use the Bridge to 10K podcasts to work through over the next month of so which should take me to an hours run and the Audiofuel Low intensity run which will take me to 2 hours. I'm also seriously considering the local Parkrun on Saturday which will be my first race since the third year school cross country back in the days when the world was in black and white and I finished 91st out of 92.
So, Keep Running Guys
