Graduation WK 9 Run 2

Graduation WK 9 Run 2

Just completed WK 9 Run 2. Since I started this program I always heard suggestions of changing routes and places, to be honest I didn’t pay any attention to this as I was very comfortable with the convenience of my location. Today I thought why not, let me try running by the beach. I just loved it. Temperature was about 30, plenty of fresh air and no disturbance. I did the normal stretches before the 5 minutes brisk walk warm-up and then 15 minutes run one direction before turning back for another 15 minutes back. I realised I was about 1 minute slower on my way back. Amazing sunrise and the view is breathtaking. I have decided to do my final WK 9 run 3 at this same place. Thursday is graduation day.

Breathtaking!! and the sand in your trainers will be a stark reminder of your hard work. Good luck for final run - I sense a cool celebratory swim will be the requirements of the day! :)

Thank you Carole, yes a swim will be a very good idea. I must admit didn't think about that

Ohh, by the way actually I run on the pavement, running on the sand is very hard

Very hard! I did it in Dubai last week - but took the trainers off went barefoot and jumped in the sea after! Needed much!
