WK8 begins :)

WK8 begins :)

Just done wk8r1 and managed to knock 22secs off my last 5K time already. Must be these new x-socks I've brought lol they are really comfortable and let your feet breath as well. 5 more runs to grad day woop woop it's like a run in the park lol. I can't believe how I started this C25k thinking I'd never do it and now I've nearly graduated. Come on all you new runners you can do it 😊😊 J

Well done Jase! I feel the same. It's taking over my life. Yesterday I had a run, read Runner's World, entered a race and spent far too long on this forum. Surprised I get any work done any more! Glad you're loving it too and getting on so well. Good luck with the rest of Week 8 :)
