Well, I did it. I didmy 3rd run of week 9 last night and have officially graduated.
Not the best of runs to be honest, felt like stopping a number of times, but amazingly at about the 20 min mark found my rythem and felt so good I ended up running till Laura said the cool down had finished.
Speaking of Laura, I was a little sad when she said good by and I realised our little 9 week love affair was over
So after cooling down showering and a celibratery Coke Zero, I started thinking what next.
Well to continue running obvious, but I think I am the type of person that needs targets and goals to keep myself motivated.
So, I have a route that is exactly 5k and currently It takes me 40 mins including 5 mins walking both sides of the 30 min Run. my first Goal will be to complete the 5k without walking. So that is Goal number 1.
Goal number 2. a park runs with my wife (Shes been running for 2 years now so we havent ran together as of yet)
Goal 3 to be able to run the 5k in 30 mins.
That should keep me going.
P.S one other piece of good news. when I started the program I was just the wrong side of 20 stone. after weighing myself this morning, I am on now on the right side, just the right side , but still the right side.
