Couch to 5K

Week 9, Run 2 - Only one more to go!

Went for a nice run this afternoon after work around the local country park - The rain cleared up just before and it was lovely and sunny - saw cygnets, herons, ducks and a few friendly locals including a guy whom I accidentally waved at last time because I thought he was a friend of mine! Thought he must have thought I was a bit of a loon!

I've set up Runkeeper to just record the running bit (after I've done the 5min warm-up) and today I did 5K in just under 36mins (that's a second faster than Wednesday night!).

I still feel like running is a bit of an 'out of body experience' - like it's someone else doing the running because I still can't fathom that I can run for that long (or at all to be honest). But it feels pretty good and that's the main thing!

Can't wait till my graduation run!

Well done !!!. I'm just home from my w9r3 run and feel amazing but that is such a good way to describe it- an out of body experience. I can't believe that it's me running that far either. Enjoy your graduation run.

Enjoy W9R3 and graduation!
