Run 1 Week 9 ~ The Grand finale

Run 1 Week 9 ~ The Grand finale

Well hello everybody, hope you all had a wonderful weekend and for those who entered the London Winter Run, well done and congratulations (hopefully I'll be there next year).

So my final week, only 3 runs left (I hope) and I will have graduated.It's been a whole 8 weeks already, time has just flown by, so much so that we're in February already!

Back to the run....My thoughts/plan for this week were to keep calm, run my normal run like last week and for Friday finish on a high! Well those were my thoughts and this is Saul!! Could I keep to the plan, no sir! I just had to go and do a run that Forrest Gump himself would have been proud of.

Thank's for dropping by, I'll let the stats tell you the rest of the story.

I knew it was going to be a big run, as I had passed by usual turning point towards home and there was no mentioning of how long I had left.

Have you had Julie turn up on the run yet?

Well, that's 5k in 30 minutes sorted then. Congratulations Saul, but don't forget you are not a superhero yet. Be careful. You don't want to get on the IC right now.

Keep running, keep smiling.

Stick to the plan. Don't be tempted to run too far or too fast!!!! That way lies disaster dahling!

Enjoy these final runs! Savour them. Relish them, then chew em up and spit em out,. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeha!

Have fun.

To be honest, this run wasn't meant to be that fast or that far. I don't think I'll be running again like that (but happy knowing it can be done) and will bring the pace back down.

It would be really sad to end up injured now.

Wow, to me it is a fantastic time. You are doing really well in my books.

I did 6.8K this morning and it took me 1.02.35 hrs. Average of 9.13 per K 😩
