I had a good run today, week 9 run 3, speeding up a bit at the end to show myself I've got something in reserve. i have a slow, steady pace now that feels right and feels like something I can build on. Quite excited to keep running and improving. I've worked through the programme exactly as it is laid out and have had no problems.
I am going to stick around for a bit on this forum, keep learning and try to encourage others. I love the supportive and generous tone and I've learned so much and been inspired by so many of you. I've also signed up for the Bridge to 10 K forum.
A bit about me - I live on the west coast of Canada, retired from a full job but busier than ever doing consulting work from home, which gives me flexibility, and I've great places to run. I get too busy, so running is great as it gets me away from my computer. I've never been at all athletic, but I have discovered that I have a capacity to be persistent. I've done lots of long distance walking, including in the UK. So my aim is to transfer my love of moving through the landscape at a slow pace for a long time to running, and build up the kms.
