The graduation run is coming up and I'm wondering if I should try and make it special. I have been trying to change things since week 7 but work and family stuff haven't allowed me to alter anything. Running around a 450 m track in the same park I started C25K has been getting so boring I am convinced each run will be my last. The other thing is I want to shift from evening runs to morning ones as the evening ones are interfering with my sleep. My question is should I switch things up for the final run? Will it make it special (as opposed to I-want-to-shoot-myself boring)? Or will it out too much pressure on an already loaded run?
W9R2 done! Just one run left...: The graduation... - Couch to 5K
I don't think anyones graduation run is boring - it's such a great feeling 😀!! I tried mixing it up about week 7 but I'm afraid I needed consistency and familiarity and so reverted back to my trusty old route for the rest of the programme but we are all different. I can't really advise - all I would say is that it is a really special run wherever you are - wishing you a great run - let us all know how you get on so we can celebrate with you 😀
See what you feel like. You could try to plot out a nice route for your graduation which would be more exciting - but you wouldn't want unexpected distractions or hills to throw you off.
Why not graduate as planned and then keep things fresh by mixing it up a bit - new routes, new distances, new podcasts or your own music or silent running.
Morning runs are just magic - sets you up for the day!
