Week 8 Run 2

So I made it to my new house in a different town and I've enjoyed my first two runs here very much (despite being rather exhausted)! Lovely fields of flowers and it's all nice and flat too :)

I've found Week 8 challenging but doable so far, still nowhere near 5K in terms of running though! But managing to go at a steady pace I think!

Somebody will soon arrive here to remind you that the object is just to keep going for 30 minutes (stamina), and that 5km is "tomorrow's" problem. Oh hang on, I just did it myself, didn't I? (And you know it anyway :-) )

Good to hear you're back on track. The end draws near. And then there will be another. And another. And for the rest of your days you will chase the Will O' the Wisp. And the secret of that is that it's not pointless doing so.

Thank you Gary - I am concentrating on the time rather than distance, as you say! Thanks for your wise words :)

Started in April and did my first 5K yesterday! 30 minutes of running is a awesome achievement in itself. Well done

Congratulations on surviving the move and still getting out there to run. I am about to run Week 9 R 2, and am also nowhere near doing 5k in 30 mins. It looks to be some months away, but we will all get there eventually. Sounds like a nice area to run. Good luck in your new home.

Hi Sarah, I'm a week behind you, but same, still nowhere near the 5k. It will come with time for us both! :-)

Yes go steady. No rush

Running will be a great way of getting to know your new town, and it won't take you long to find all the footpaths and your way about the place. It makes the runs much quicker when you have a change of scenery. I like to run in a new place as often as possible and that way you don't feel like you're going further but you are

Have fun!
