I done my week 9 run 1 a couple of days ago and unlike all my other weeks where I took the same path, I took a (planned) detour half way into my run so that I can pop into Wickes to buy some paint (which was the best colour by the way, bright yellow!). I think the different route made the 30 minutes fly by and it was great seeing new scenery.
I completed my week 9 run 2 yesterday and I feel like it was slightly harder than run 1 but not as hard as week 5 run 3! I just wish that there was a different podcast for week 9 run 1 and 2, and week 9 run 3 because hearing Laura (yup, I'm still using Laura!) say bye at the end makes me feel weepy (in a good way!)
I calculated that for the first run I ran 4.04km in 30 minutes and for the second run I ran 4.14km in 30 minutes (which I'm quite proud of) I feel that given a couple of weeks I will be able to run 5km in 30 minutes since that's quite a lot of progress
P.S. Only 1 more run!!!!!
