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.
