Found a great road to run along down the east side of Coniston water if anyone finds themselves up there! Long runs followed by dips in the lake were amazing. The water was lovely and warm by around 8pm.
Just finished the three week 8 runs. The heat has been a challenge. It isn't cold enough by 8pm! I'm running as late as I can at the moment. I haven't noticed these runs get easier throughout the week like the others.
Week 9 approaches and I'm looking forward to a park run at Lydiard Park at the end of it. I'm also getting ready to ask the "what next for me" question. It's been such a great programme, will I have the motivation to continue? I'd love to, but I don't want it to become uncomfortable. No pains yet though!
First 30 minute run tomorrow. No chance of doing 5k but that doesn't matter. That's what park runs are for.
