I did it! The third run of Week 9 done and dusted. Still can't really believe I can 'run' (well, jog really) for 30 minutes but feeling pretty chuffed with myself - if I can do it, anyone can! So a big thank you to Michael Johnson and all you lovely people on here who have given me as a reader such encouragement and support through their posts; I haven't written many posts but have been very active lurking and have made the promise to contribute more as I will definitely be carrying on running and I love being part of this forum.
I'm feeling a little disappointed I couldn't manage to get to 4k in my final run - my distances according to Endomondo were 3.94k (R1), 3.84k (R2) and 3.95k (R3) so tantalisingly close but there just wasn't enough left in the tank to go any faster at the end
So now looking forward to continuing to run 3 times a week and consolidating; first of all reaching that elusive 4k and then aiming for 5k - distance over speed at the moment I think ...
