The Final Count Down - Week 9 Run 2

NIGHTINGALE1 profile image

Another step closer. I made a beginner's error and started off a bit too quickly this morning even although my intention was to run only for the 30 mins this morning but pick up the pace a little bit. By the time I got to the end I was blowing a little bit. However I recovered quickly enough on my cool down walk.

There is a little posse of us, The Muskateers, who are due to finish the programme on Friday or over the weekend. I am looking forward to counting them all in on their penultimate runs before we all cross the line together later in the week. Good luck to them and everyone else running today, what ever stage you are at. One for all and all for one!

And another musketeer in :) there's no stopping you early-bird boys. I'll be out a bit later to follow in your footsteps. Another one in the bag @NIGHTINGALE1 Just half an hour away from that cap and gown!!!!

They're both still a little bit 'crackly'. Only one is still weeping though. I'm taping them up again before I run. They'll be fine I'm sure. Up and attem😀

Good effort you weren't the only one to have a beginners error I started of doing week seven somehow and had to quickly nip back to the start to do week 9
