Week 8 done - on the home straight

No Parkrun yesterday as I had a dreadful nights sleep and was exhausted by morning :( So I got up early today to get W8R3 done. Didn't feel brilliant but managed my fastest ever 1k split during the run. The plan (ha! plan!) for this week is to run after work on Tuesday and Thursday then (hopefully) graduate at Parkrun on Saturday. Here's hoping at least...

Sounds great. I'm heading off on Week 9 tomorrow so hopefully will graduate this week too! Have a great week, hope the tiredness fades away with the excitement of getting to the end of week 9. Finishing on a parkrun sounds fab, let us all know how you get on. Take care and enjoy your running!

Oooh, those are the same days as me. Fingers crossed this weather (or anything else) doesn't get in our way. There's going to be one heck of a party on Saturday.

You too! I'm just back from run 2. Worryingly it felt pretty ok - hoping I'm not jinxing myself for Saturday. See you at the finish line :)
