Week 8 Run 1

Hi everyone,

So I did my W8R1 this afternoon, I wasn't particularly looking forward to it as it had another three minutes added taking the run to 28 minutes.

I still find it hard between 5-10 minutes in but after that I seem to settle in to a nice run.

I managed to run the whole 28, increased my distance to 5.6k (including warm up and cool down walks) and my best kilometre was run in 6 minutes 28 seconds.

I feel like I'm making good progress and I'm loving it.

I think I'm getting addicted 😀

Cant wait for R2 on Wednesday.

Thank you, no real plans yet for after graduation.

I think I will carry on with 3 x 30 minute runs per week for a while to work on my technique, then sign up for some park runs.

I'm probably going to do the Birmingham colour too.

Thank you Shivani,

I'm looking forward to finishing Week 9 but I think I am going to miss the structure of the podcasts too.
