Hello Week 9

Well this morning I went out and did Run 3 for Week 8 and completed it. Hurrah! I was thinking as I was running that my pace has got quicker (even tho it's still slow)! Another lady running passed me with a very lovely smile and a good morning but was soon just a speck in the distance:-).

However, having said that 10 weeks ago I couldn't run for 5 minutes non-stop and now I can run for 28 minutes non-stop so bring on the next 3 runs :-). So chuffed.

Well done! You're nearly there! Don't worry about faster runners, you're way faster than all those sat on the couch! X

Thank you. Wasn't worried about the faster runner, just found it difficult to imagine that anyone could get that far that quick and still manage to run :-). I am happy with what I am achieving, it's huge for me and like you say I am OFF the couch.
