W7R3 Bulk order please!

Beautiful start to a Wednesday, the sun was just coming up as I set out for R3 and now I understand why people wear baseball caps when they run as I was dazzled for about 40% of the run with the bright orange sun appearing.

After the disaster that was R2 I started out carefully for R3. Holding back to make sure I wasn't going to fast, I think that may have a contributor to the problem with hind sight. It worked, the run was over before I knew it .. hurrah. I even took a lap around the field I used for my first couple of weeks on C25K just because I could and it felt good. The legs and lungs all behaved well and even the sniffly nose was much improved. So I would like to bulk order 6 more runs like todays to see me through to graduation lol, if only it was that easy ;)

2 days rest now before I start W8 on Saturday. I know others have said it but I really believe I have come this far, the end is in sight!

  • Well done.

    Yeah, it would be great if we could bottle the good/easy runs. No worries though, you are nearly there, slow and steady and you will reel the six remaining runs off.

  • Thank you Dunder will certainly give it my best shot :D

  • How inspiring! Thank you for sharing. And good luck with Week 8 ๐Ÿ’ช

  • Thank you Feistlet x

  • Baseball caps are "in" this year - make sure you have yours in time for Ladies' Day! If Week 7 was that easy then the rest of the programme should hold no fears :)

  • haha will have to see what I can find ;) aside from R2 it was a pretty good week which has stunned me a bit, hopefully it's not a false sense of security :S
