W9R3 Done!

W9R3 Done!

So it's taken more than 9 weeks but I did my final week 9 run at Parkrun yesterday morning and it felt great! It was my second Parkrun and I reduced my time by just over 1 minute to 33 mins 11 seconds, pretty amazing seeing as I haven't run for literally decades (I'm 61) and I have a tendency to start things but not finish them. In my last post I said I was happy to keep my runs to 5 klm's BUT .... there is a Mother's Day Classic run in Brisbane on 10/5/15 and the two runs are for 4.5 or 8 klm. I can't see any point in reducing my run distance to 4.5 ( why would they have a run shorter than 5 klm?) so it looks like I have plenty of time to slowly increase the distance so I can do the 8 klm. Feeling fantastic πŸ˜ƒ Love this forum as I am so motivated by all the great comments.
