Week 9, Run 1, good run, went a bit too fast, that means a wee wee bit quicker than slow slow, forgot to follow orders. Sore ankle, ice pack and some massage cream, felt better. Run 2, good run and good pace, feeling good, ankle still got a bit of a niggle using massage cream and ice pack. Run 3, Beautiful day in Fort William, brilliant run and good pace, ankle, what ankle, I am walking on air. This 60 year old, who has not run since school days has finished. Awesome, I done it, fantastic, I feel very very good and quite proud of myself. Farewell dads army, I've joined the regulars, I am a runner. Thank you everyone who has posted, shared their experience, given advice, thanks also to the admins, and to Laura and Julie and not forgetting dads army who play their part. Photo's of my running route and of me at the finish. Ps, just found out that there is a half marathon in November on the same route. Hmmm, could I, no, yes, maybe, how far, what!! hmmm, lets see how it goes, need a training plan!! will keep you posted. xx
