I ran the last run of week 8 yesterday morning. It was a mixture of the two previous runs - which was what I wanted. Five minutes slow followed by five minutes faster etc. I found it very difficult to slow down after going fast. It was a good run, was able to speed up right at the end, but it wasn't as special as the two runs before!
Only one week left - gulp! I don't know if I want to go out into the big wide running world on my own without Laura! I'm not ready for this - I'm not really a runner, it's all a sham.🤔
In fact I really am thinking of dragging it out a bit. Last week was tiring, not only because of the running. I ended up doing over 15 kms of walking or running every day and didn't really get a proper rest day, so I'm feeling it a bit at the moment. I cut back on the usual walking today and won't run tomorrow, but will save my first W9 run for the weekend (it's like saving up a special treat - who would have thought running could be considered a treat!). Then some time next week I'll get the other 2 in and then....... graduation beckons! It would be nice and symbolic if I did the last run on Thursday, because that's my older boy's birthday. On that day all those years ago I started on the slippery slope to being overweight, unfit and having no time for myself. Of course I can't blame the kids - it was all my own fault and bad organization/decisions, but it would be very symbolic if I got my running graduation on that day as well! But we shall see!
Looking forward to all the posts from those just behind me. There's going to be lots of whooping for joy next week😎
