Well, I'm on the last week!
Never thought I'd get here. Did the first run of week nine on Sunday after a two day rest and made the decision to do the same again before the second run - which will be tomorrow morning. Then Thursday and Friday off, run Saturday and...
I won't say "that's it," yet. I'll believe it once I've done it all, and 30 minutes is still a long time and Saturday is nearly a week away.
But I am getting there.
I did feel like crying when I finished the run on Sunday, I just couldn't believe I'd finished it. Walked to the meadow, in the rain, ran around it, ran home, ran around the block twice and then walked it one and a bit times for the cool-down. Was branded a "bad-ass" for running in the rain and was also greeted by my little one with "Did you have a nice time?" as I reappeared, dripping wet, at the end.
And the first ten minutes of the run are still the worst. Don't mind the rest, even if I am tired at the end that's just normal. Really don't like the first ten.
I have started obsessing about the rest of my daily routine too - number of steps, calories in, calories out, distance walked/run. Hopefully this will pass and I'll stop boring friends/family, though having bought my husband an activity tracker as well that he's getting obsessed about too, I don't really see that happening.
