Week 9 completed! Woohoo!

Some of you may remember that I was planning to finish the programme the day before I went on holidays.

Well, due to family crisis (x2), working long hours, drinking too much at my work leaving do, and leaving packing until the last minute I headed to the airport stranded on Week 9, Run 2! I couldn't wait two weeks, so packed my kit and after a few days of getting used to the lovely sun, I went for a run around Corfu Town this morning. Kept the pace nice and slow (26 degrees, phew!) and managed a respectable 3.4km.

I was a sweaty, tomato-faced mess at the end, and needed a quick sit in the shade with an iced tea before completing my cool down walk, but I did it! Very pleased with myself. I may treat myself to some cheese pie for lunch
