Week 8 Run 2

Hi Everyone,

So earlier this evening I completed W8 R2.

I was working outside all day today and got thoroughly soaked with all of the rain we are having.

I was convinced this run would be a wet one too. Anyway I took a waterproof jacket in a small rucksack and set off.

Luckily the rain held off for the run and the annoying pain I have been feeling in my groin didn't occur on this run.......yeah 😀

I did the same distance as W8 R1 approximately 5.6k (including warm up and cool down walks) and my best k was ran in 6'13'.

Im really pleased with the progress so far and I think for my graduation run I'm not going to log the warm up and cool down walks and just try and run for a true 5k.

Bring on W8 R3 I say 😀

Bob

  • Fantastic !

    Well done Bob , you never know , you might end up enjoying running in the rain ! :-)

    Onwards, always :-) xxx

  • Thank you PP.

    I don't think I would mind running in the rain, at least people wouldn't be able to tell how much I'm sweating!

  • Great progress Bob. I did my first 5k in 43 minutes when I graduated and that was a nice slow and steady plod but I did it. Even a 30 minute run, no matter what the distance is enough to pass the test and a significant achievement though, avoid injury at all cost. Julie

  • Thank you Joolie.

    Yes I think doing a 5k for graduation would be great.

  • Well done - great pace too! I managed Week 8 run 2 today , so we will both be graduating soon. Fantastic programme, I never thought I would be able to run for 30 minutes non-stop!

  • Thank you Skyhigh.

    So we are both at the same stage eh. Like you I could never imagine myself as a runner.

    Good luck with the final four runs.
