Week 9 all done and completed and has been the best weeks' worth of runs so far, with today's topping the charts of any run done so far (no guesses as to why that would be )
Run 1 started out cloudy and then rained for the last half so arrived at my destination slightly damp but happy
Run 2 was near perfect conditions There was a heavy frost but the sun was shining and the road/track was clear of ice, with hardly a breath of wind. It really was the most beautiful of runs and completed in a good time too. And it gave me the feeling that with another day like that I could possibly even get to do 5k in 30 mins!
Run 3 was into a head wind all the way, cloudy but no rain. It was only when the wind momentarily dropped that I realised I would have been running faster without the resistance lol So I did my final 30 mins which I had hoped would cover the 5k but not to be so I continued running and did 5.2k in 35 mins. Well chuffed as it was deffo harder running into the wind and the wind seemed to get stronger as I neared the end too!
It's amazing to think that when I found this site (entirely by mistake I might add) I had not even had any notion of running at all. Reading the posts on here convinced me that it might be worth a shot so I have a lot to thank you guys for. And for your continued support and wonderful posts. Of course, there is the lovely Laura to thank too, though it's probably time to fess up here.... I did the last 5 runs without her and loved every minute of it And most of all I would like to thank my lovely hubby for cheering me on and being so supportive and proud of me for doing this and for being there at the end of my graduation run And as an added bonus we sat and watched the squirrels playing while I had my celebratory water and clementine
