Hello week niners! It's jolly nice to be here. Well I've reached for the stars and seem to have got there
There are a couple of important things happening today - something north of Hadrian's Wall and the fact that I, that's me, have run continuously for 30 minutes and not a million miles off 5k.
I nearly turned back around when I heard the first track up was Julie! When Laura said 'final week - 30 minutes' I felt 'wow' I really have come some way and felt rather proud of myself. And then I ran for 30 minutes - - just a nice steady pace without feeling it was a race. I thoroughly enjoyed it, breathed easily, put on a small spurt for the last five minutes and an even bigger one for the last two minutes - and because of my now longer route those last two minutes were uphill (bad planning) And it was arms reaching up to the skies, big insane grins and whoops of delight. This has been such an amazing ride. So that's 9.1 slaughtered, destroyed, annihilated - sorry these runs get me blood up - och aye
Two more to go and awards ceremony, shiny badge, party and falling out of the taxi time... However there may be a little problem - watch this space...
