Yeah! Week 9 Run 3 Over! And that seemed so much easier than W9R2, despite (or perhaps because of) the headwind and drizzle. And I see from my splits that I also put in a significant improvement in times compared with the previous few runs, 5k in 29:32, my first sub 30 minute this time on the programme and just 5 seconds off my PB from last time I completed C25K so feeling really quite smug.
The 'light at the end of he tunnel' certainly gives you that extra boost, and just goes to emphasise just how much of mental game this whole running thing really is.
I have to admit that I more or less stuck to my 1 run a week - initially out of necessity but latterly from routine. I wish I'd upped to to twice a week when the days got a little longer as I'm sure it would have been easier but if you're struggling with 3 runs a week it just goes to show that you can complete the programme with fewer runs over a longer timeframe - just keep at at it!
