Week 7 is done !

Took my new toy out this morning and ran with Runkeeper as my guide and Madonna in my ears (sorry Laura but you will come with me again on Tuesday). My music obviously has a faster beat so when Runkeeper told me my average speed I panicked thinking I would run out of steam too soon. Then I remembered the post from Irish-John yesterday, and I tried to relax, first my shoulders, then my legs and do you know what I kept the speed up for the whole 25 minutes. Nothing amazing but my best yet and it feels fantastic so thank you for coming with me today. 😀😄

Have a good run. Has certainly put me in a high for the day. Poor hubby is still creeping around trying to wake up. Told him he needs to get started in C25K - he's at the procrastination stage !

Think he will only run when we get the loan treadmill from our friends. He has been going for a walk at lunchtimes during the week so at least he has started something.

Very curious about Julie ! And I can't believe I got to this point - I struggled so much in those first 3 weeks and today I have run for 25 minutes at an average speed of 9.13 mins/km. last week it was over 10 minutes. 10 weeks ago I could barely shuffle for 60 secs. This program and forum is incredible. 😀
