I've got 5 more runs to graduation and I'm definitely feeling that it's within my grasp now. Like my other forum buddies with graduation in their sights (JaySee can reach out and touch it, if she's not careful she might run straight past it 😂😂) my thoughts have been turning to what next? Laura is a bit of a crutch to me. I can't imagine running without a goal or a target on each run, it's just the way my mind works. I've come to realise that I'm competitive even if my only competition is myself!
I did my W8R1 last night and it was great. Tough, but only in the "I feel like I've had a good workout" sense. I don't approach W9 with any trepidation and could probably run for 30 minutes now if I kept going but the plan has served me well so far so I'll stick to it to the letter. I'm a stickler for the rules 😉
I didn't use runkeeper last night so mapped my run manually when I got back and I covered 4.2km in the 28 minutes. So my first mini target for myself after graduation is to work on 5k in 30 minutes. I think I'd like parkrun but they're all on Saturday mornings and I have another commitment.
What do the C25k + podcasts involve?
If you've read this long rambling post, well done! Treat yourself to a brew. You deserve it! 😁☕
