The frequency of posts are due to the frequency of running! I'm finally past the winter bugs and have been out every second day. W8 R3 on Thursday felt great. As previously reported I feel totally unable to go faster though map my run tells me my pace is marginally increasing each stage of the programme.
I deliberately turned a corner to end the final minute going up a moderate hill. I would never have done that before.
So I'm just back from W9 R1 and I found the extra 2 mins totally manageable. I think I could probably manage around 35 mins running later this week.
I'm still toying with our forum's Virtual Parkrun on Christmas Eve but using my memory of calculating numbers using proportions (thanks AnneDroid 's mum) I've worked out it would take me 50ish minutes to finish Parkrun which is too slow I think. I've factored in my speed for 35 mins running and 15 mins walking. People do 10Ks in that time!
But I now know I am GOING TO GRADUATE!! Plan is to run Monday and Thursday.
