Farewell week 8 - it's been grand...

Evening lovely runners!

Completed my final run of week 8 this afternoon. It was hard work, and I was very red and very sweaty afterwards, but I made it all the way without any problems. A horse overtook me, then I overtook it... then it overtook me, then I overtook it again! Maybe the horse was interval training (!) because my pace was pretty constant. So, I have discovered that I run slower than a trotting horse, but faster than a walking horse!

I've really enjoyed week 8. Whatever distance I've been doing this week seems to suit me, or maybe I've just been lucky because all 3 runs were good :)

Final week here I come! Oh wow!!
