Beautiful day went out for the final run with my husband. We live in Normandy near Caen. Although he was far ahead of me it spurred me on and i actually ran faster than I ever had before (and a bit longer). It literally flew by.
Laura has been a godsend. No park runs here in France but quite a few 10k events (we'll see !!) I fully intend to carry on at least twice a week trying to gain pace as I'm still really slow. I also realise that living in a very hilly area means that I was doing steep uphill runs from the start. Downhill is fun though.
I would like to thank all the lovely people on this forum who have been so encouraging. i really thought I was rubbish at running and now I can see how much progress I have made in just 11 weeks (I repeated some of the first runs because I was so scared)
Good luck to you all and good running
