Best run so far. Week 8 run 1 :-)

Well i headed out at 7.10am wondering how hard those extra 3 minutes were going to be?

I put on my i pod and was determined not to look at the time. After 6 songs i thought i'd have a little peek. Only 4 minutes to go.!! Where did the time go??

It was a lovely sunny morning with the rays glistening off the wet path. A few other runners, dog walkers and a cyclist were up and about grasping the crisp morning air and radiating off the lovely blue skies.

What better way to start the day: blue skies, sunshine and Tracy Chapman.

Now i am off to push some papers around my desk!! See you on my next run x

Well done.....on the cusp now!! Can't believe i/we have come this far. I was buggered doing a 1 minute run in week 1 and i have just run for 28 minutes!! A great exercise plan!!

I have put my name down for a 4k fun run around Manchester airport but there are limited numbers so got to see if i can get on it yet. Should be fun if i do!

Good luck for week 9....you have it in the bag!! x
