Having done Week 8 last week, and having agreed with my daughter-in-law to join her on a 5-mile charity run, my plan was to run for 30 minutes as my first run of Week 9 and to walk the rest of the way. What with the unfamiliar route (hills!) and the weaving around other people, it didn't quite work out that way. DIL left me behind within minutes, as agreed, and I ended up jogging/walking for the first 3 miles and then walking for a mile. I thought I would run the final mile, only to be confronted by a humpback bridge and another hill! So I walked that bit and once the route flattened out again I ran to the finish. A gorgeous morning to be out, in a stunning setting, so I'm glad I did it. Week 9 will have to wait another couple of days.
