Wowzee W8 done

Did a morning run today decided not to worry about distance and just plod through it. But after 2mins I was thinking about the whinging post I was going to write. After 6mins I was debating whether to stop and walk home! Another 22 mins felt impossible BUT was on a downhill route and kept going and at 10 mins felt ok at - 18 mins thought only 10 mins to go then the last 2 mins I was huffing and puffing as usual but felt much better than W8r2. This was defo a love/hate run. 3 to go can't believe it :-D

Yeah, well done! I can sooo relate to the love/hate thing. So we are both heading for week 9 now and I know we'll survive, even if we won't do a leisurely 5k yet.

Oh, I can so relate to that. On run 1 of week 9 today, I was thinking how nice it would be to stop and walk a bit at about minute 20 but managed to soldier on and did it in the end. Adding one or two minutes at the end? Dream on! But hey, that was 30 minutes! Two rest day now, so we'll graduate more or less on the same day!

Woohoo! Well done! I am on your tail and hoping we will graduate within days of each other :-D
