Week 8 Run 3

Hi everyone,

I don't post here very much but thought I would share my recent experiences.

Week 7 was an enjoyable week and the Week 8 Run 1 was a pleasant surprise and my minute/miles increased too without me feeling too exhausted. However, week 8 run 2 was horrendous. I really struggled and almost slowed to a walk so ran for 29 minutes to make up for that. Run 3 wasn't much better until about 3/4 of the way through, at 28 minutes I had ran for 2.5 miles so decided to just continue for another half a mile and surprised myself by doing it and in 34 mins 7 seconds. Which I was quite pleased with.

I know that I have jumped a little ahead but felt like I could and glad I did as I feel I can maybe start to do ParkRun.

This site has been great for keeping me motivated. Still have week 9 to do but I'm sure I will be able to push myself on.

Thanks everyone

  • Hi this is my first time of posting, I've just started reading posts this week and have found it helpful.

    Well done that's great effort! 3 runs left!! Fantastic I've just completed W8 run1 today I was struggling a bit with a hill today but kept going it was tough and I'm sure it was harder than it was last week, maybe because it was so cold out it made a difference anyway at the end of the run I felt like I could have kept going on and on.

    I feel quite excited at the prospect of graduating and would like to try park runs. Can't believe I'm saying that !

  • Enjoy week 9. It sounds you are definitely ready for it!
