Was all going along swimmingly. Had a lovely break at Centre Parcs for our wedding anniversary and as well as cycling and swimming also kept up my runs and completed week 7 and started week 8.
Then BAM, struck down by a nasty flu type bug which left me with an upset tummy for a few days too.
So tonight set out on W8, R2 with some trepidation having not run for a week. In my mind I was prepared to cut it short if I needed too. Had my usual 10 min struggle feeling like I had lead in my feet, then settled into my usual steady plod. Reached my nemesis steep hill at 18 in minutes which nearly got me, but once I got over that found I felt stronger as I ran and finished at quite a good pace.
Can't believe I have only 4 runs left till I graduate. A few weeks ago running for 1 minute was exhausting.
