I ran W8R3 this evening and found it really enjoyable. It was very cold and windy, but I warmed up quickly. It was still light as I ran, which was novel - it's something I'll have to get used to! I looked out for Mr Fox but yet again he wasn't around - I think maybe it was too light for him.
The run was actually really uneventful. I kept a good, consistent pace, my legs weren't wading through honey as it felt like on run 2 of this week, I wasn't heckled... it was just a good run that I enjoyed Sadly I lost a little pace towards the end. I suffer sporadically from intense uterine pains, and in the final 3 minutes and during the cool down walk I was in so much pain I was almost crying out, which obviously made me slow down, but I kept going nonetheless.
I didn't break any personal records today, but I am happy that I completed the run and this week. I've really felt that I could keep going after the 28 minute runs this week, but I have decided to stick to the plan to avoid injury and the like. I feel confident about starting week 9.
My lovely cousin who I mentioned competed in the Kingston 10K at the weekend generously donated to my British Heart Foundation 5k run at the end of March in Regent's Park, which I am ecstatic about. Are any c25k-ers going to be running it?
I'm going to have to have a sit down at some point this week and figure out what I want to do after graduation. Obviously I have my 5k to look forward to, and the Race for Life 5k in May, but I think I need to set myself some smaller/other goals besides. I'm thinking maybe the C25k+ plan as many people on here rave about it! But I'll come up with some more concrete plans when I'm not so busy.
I hope that everyone has had a successful week so far!
