GOBSMACKED!!!

Really?? Yes I done it.. :) w8R3 so amazed.. So happy.. after 6 weeks out and just one test the knee run on Monday :) How did I mannage that!! But I did :) 3k in 30 mins.. woopee woopee. I managed 2k twenty mins on Monday and took two rest days.. a swim and knee strengthening in between.. didn't really feel it thismorning.. but I thought get out and see where I get to.. something just takes over!!! 2k Mark and I thought.. I may have a bit left..knee felt fine ..breathing was good..posture was better..and before I knew it.. I wasn't giving up till 3k or 30 mins was done!!!

I'm totally gobsmacked!! I'm back.. and that race for life in July.. seems like it might just happen :)

I need to calm down.. lol.. go for a shower and get to work :)

Happy running everyone x

It is great to see that your patience paid off, isn't it?

Very well done for your first 30-minute run; I'm sure you'll be ready and strong for your "Race for Life". :)

You were being cheeky- week 8 is supposed to be 28 minutes I believe?!

Fantastic that you're back in the game, keep slow and steady and off the IC and I reckon you'll breeze the race :)

Best wishes xx

Well... I cheated a bit too. I did two 30 minute runs for W8R2 & W8R3 and I just did W9R1. I want to make it official though, so two more 30minute runs it is. One's planned for Saturday and grad run on Monday (I have to calendarise runs now!). I'm getting excited!

Thanks everyone :)

JT I've been running with zenlabs c25k. Seemingly there are a few different variations.. and week 8 run 3 is a 30 min run.. but I will add the week nine and run three more 30 min runs to qualify for my (hopefully) official graduation x
