Extended Wk7 completed - and a sponge for Poppypug :-)

Extended Wk7 completed - and a sponge for Poppypug :-)

Well that's week 7 done and dusted - although it took me a few days longer than planned. Found a fabulous route around Badminton Estate and rattled off R1 and R2 but must admit I really didn't enjoy either of them - think my fall must've affected me more than I thought. Then I discovered that 18 hour working days didn't contain enough time or energy for running so had to wait until this morning to do R3.

I was worried I might've lost a bit form having not run at all for a week, but I couldn't have been more worng. This morning's run was the most comfortable and enjoyable by far, and I actually ran for 40 seconds longer than necessary! Roll on Wk 8 this time around Chatwsworth Estate in Derbyshire :-)

And the sponge is for Poppypug's momentous 10K achievement - well done you gorgeous gal! :-)
