I haven't been on here in a while. Between super hectic work schedule, house painting and general spreading myself too thin I haven't been hugely on top of my running game.....
BUT I HAVEN'T GIVEN UP!
Which is a miracle for me. I'm excellent at getting too enthusiastic about things and losing interest quickly. I have hd plenty of opportunities where it would have been easy to give up but I've been beavering away in the background with my runs albeit with slightly larger gaps in between than I'd like!
I last posted at W7R1 and am now at W8R2!
Today was an extra special run so I've made time for a little report... I had run about 3.6k in my alloted 28 minutes but felt I had more in me so I decided to abandon the clock and run until Mr Strava told me I had hit 4k. When I thought about it in terms of only 400m to go it seemed perfectly doable and it was! I'm thrilled, yay me! I ran for a total of 30.39 at my usual pace and ran for the longest and furthest I ever have in my life which gives me such a kick. So although the programme is taking me slightly longer than 9 weeks (ok, quite a bit longer), I don't feel disheartened.
So to any newbies - if I can stick with this thing then anyone can!
