Week 9 by accident

I was due to start my first week 8 run today so set Laura going and off I went. Coped with the strong head wind and then my legs began to give up on me on an uphill section. It was only at that point did I realise that I should have already finished running - but why was the music still playing?

I was not going to stop before the music so turned round and ran back the way I had come. The dulcet tones of Laura finally announced I had run for 30 minutes.

30 minutes?? I was meant to run for 28! At that Point I realised I had started week 9 podcast.

So I have come from barely running 60 seconds to running for 30 minutes in an amazing 6 and a half weeks!

I am proof the program works. Of course now I have 5 more 30 minute runs to complete to fully end the program. I managed 4.2km today so my aim is to try and improve that distance.

I feel on top of the world now, having recovered!
