It's been a wee while since I last posted so here's a quick update:
Having started back at uni last week, my whole running calendar has been turned upside down and I'm now trying to find the balance again. Since a lot of my friends have returned from holidays and hometowns, I'm suddenly inundated with social events and excuses to eat all the time! As much as it's lovely to socialise again, I really took my freedom and peace & quiet for granted over the summer.
Anyhoo, I've been staving off a very snotty cold these past few days and when I woke up this morning I was fed up of staying still. Nothing was stopping me from getting into week 9, so I headed out an hour before class and had a gorgeous run in the morning sunshine. My nose behaved itself for half an hour and let my feet do the running, I explored parts of a new route, christened my new running gear (a running belt with water-bottles and an armband for my phone) and, best of all, started my LAST WEEK OF THE PROGRAM!!!!
Jeezo, when did that happen? I could've sworn I was psyching myself up for the big run in week 5 not that long ago!
I'm now on a mission to complete the final 2 runs and say goodbye to Laura. It's been a blast, she taught me so much, but it's almost time to part ways.
I'm hoping to use the Nike+ app to push myself to running 5k, start some hill training, then progress onto the 5k+ plan and actually book a race!!!
Thank you to everyone on this page for your continued support and motivation. You're the best coaches anyone could ask for!!
