Couch to 5K

W9R1 completed, a tough run in the heat

I just about managed to complete the full 30 minutes this morning. It was really hard work in the heat, by the final 5 minutes I really don't think you could describe it as running, I was barely lifting my feet off the floor! It felt so much harder than my week 8 runs. In week 8 I was able to pause at the end of the podcasts then resume running to complete a 5k route, after 30 minutes today I had absolutely nothing left, maybe next time.

Can't believe that I'll be graduating (for the second time) sometime this week. I started in January so it's taken me a long time but hoping I can keep going this time.

Well done flowerbox, you did it, despite the heat. I'm tackling this run myself tomorrow and am definitely feeling the fear, given how warm it is. x


I feel the same this week. W9 run 2 today and I felt dead within ten mins. But I chose a route with a few hills. Stupid me. I look like my heads going to explode once I finish!!
