W9, one down 2 to go!

Had a fantastic w9r1 this morning. Went out at 6 when it actually felt a little chilly at first (I know - it was lovely!!), tried a new route that was half road, half trail, and a new playlist. Just perfect, really really enjoyed it and totally set up for the day! Had a cool shower when I got in, then a yummy smoothie (my own recipe - orange, banana, almond milk, Greek yoghurt and frozen mango! Delicious!!! ๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐Ÿน ) i am now checking out the c25k+ programs - anyone tried the speed one? Happy (cool ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰ ) running all my virtual running buddies, stay safe in the sun and well-hydrated!! ๐Ÿป

I also completed W9R3 today! There must have been something in the early morning air. I'm jealous about that smoothie - I slurped half a cup of coffee and ate an apple while getting the family out the door. It wasn't nearly as delicious :-)

Forza sandirm, you will be celebrating this time next week (or a bit before)!

Ooh that smoothie sounds the bees knees. And what a fabulous sounding run. I've done the speed podcast - I didn't like it when I first did it, but I had another try and really enjoyed it and still do it from time to time. It's great fun and really good for post grad work.

I will definitely persevere with "speed"! After hating most of w8 so much that I nearly threw in the towel, I know things can turn around!!

Go you!

I'll be out early in the morning doing w9r2 but I think it will still be fairly warm. :-(

I'm going to have to try the smoothie.

Can't even think about any of the other podcasts yet. Can't even believe I've got to week 9!

You will love your next run, just like I did! I am sure the weather will be perfect early on!! Good luck! Xxxx
