After such great postings on my last run, i took ALL of your advice and got this run done. I did slow down between 10 - 20 minute mark and then increased speed again for the last ten minutes. I didn't panic about finishing and really tried to relax a bit more. What would i do without all my running buddies advice. Well chuffed, it might be Saturday and im at work but im smiling.;-)

Well done! Almost there :) keep smiling. The fact you slowed down doesn't matter but the fact you didn't panic and finished does :) well done :)

Thanks for your posting. I thought there is no point panicking, that's why I thought if I slow down in the middle part perhaps I will be able to finish!

Yep, still one run behind you. Hoping to do run 2 tomorrow.

I still find it amazing to look back and remember how I was on week one. I can't quite believe I've come this far.

Good luck for your last run - enjoy it.

Congratulations - Net68 is right - you finished and that is what counts. Don't worry too much about pace - if you are chuffed and smiling that is what is important. Enjoy your rest day then on to graduation

Thanks Mossy1, I covered about 2.6 miles this morning which is not where I want to be but instead of beating myself up about it I've decided my next goal is to improve my pace. Here's hoping!

2.6 is really good - once you graduate you can set your own pace and that's when you will be able to stretch the distance - I am happy running between 2 and 3 miles just to keep fit. You make it your own. Well done
