Just this minute returned from W9R3 and what a buzz. Had a slow run, but 30 mins is 30 mins, nowhere near 5K, but plenty of time for that. I altered my route to avoid a long straight run back on myself bit, where my head usually gets filled with dread, had to run the hospital car park, a useful place should I overdo it!!
Received a round of applause and cheers from my husband and boys who insisted I get on here and tell you immediately.
Thank you all for your quiet support and encouragement it helps to know others have had the same doubts and run through it.
I started very nervously on 21 May and ended the programme with a flourish on 2 August. Now to set to and have a shower short term - and to increase my speed and/or time so I can get the 5K. Any advice on what next to reach the new goals would be gratefully received.
BTW did I tell you I was a GRADUATE? I am so proud of myself.
