W9R3 done

Finally I made it. I have completed all the runs.

It took me longer than expected due to an op and then a head cold but hey, I did it! I went for the last run with the idea that if I could not do it, never mind as there was always tomorrow, but somehow my legs did it. When there was only 10 minutes left, I knew I could do it.

We are bush camping and I started along the track but this track was far too deep in what we call "bull dust" (powdery red dirt/sand) . It was hard going so I turned around and went on the beach on hard compact sand. A breeze. I pushed as far as 15 minutes then turned around and had no option but to run back same distance. It felt sooo good. I am so proud of myself.

I have discovered I don't like running in 30 degree heat, so early morning and the beach will be the future. While we are on holiday anyway.

Cheers to all,

  • Thanks mfamilias, I was not too sure I could make this last run but I did it. I am using trail running shoes and it works on uneven ground. Haven't worked out how to ask for my graduation badge as yet.

  • Congratulations! Graduating on sand is impressive. Keep it up and keep enjoying it.

  • Thank you AHS, actually compact sand is easy. Soft sand is a bummer. I just have to make sure I run after the tide has gone out.
