Week 8 Done - Nearly there!!

Well, that's week 8 done. Found it tough at times but still enjoyable. And I haven't walked once on the entire programme (although I think about it lots!). I've been prepared to repeat weeks as necessary but am pleased with myself that I haven't had to do that. I'm even running up hills now!!

Week 9 takes me to Hornby Castle in........Yorkshire. Dangerous territory. But I will have my identification papers on me, and I've asked that famous Yorkshire 10K runner Poppypug to put a good word in for me :-D

427 calories burned this morning. Should cover a small slice..........

Well done! Enjoy Yorkshire and enjoy that cake :-D I started Week 9 yesterday and really, really enjoyed the run. Hope it's the same for you, especially with gorgeous surroundings (which I don't have!)

Thank you! Oh yes I hope so too - Week 8 has been tough but I think I've been tired, and I've actually really enjoyed the last few minutes of each run which bodes well. It's lovely running in beautiful places each week - just hope I can find a route that's not too hilly!

I won't really get a slice of my cake. I just dream about it. And my customers aren't too pleased if they arrive with a chunk missing :-D

Well done Sazzle. Nearly there now.

I have a lot of work to do this afternoon but I am tempted just to sit and stare at that cake!

Thank you :-)

It's torture in my kitchen Dunder. I'm making a Mars Bar cake. I don't know if I can resist this one :-(
