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.

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.

Thank you Lucie. I cannot rest my legs as I need to burn those extra calories I usually get during holiday time.
