The long and winding road to wk 9 has been completed! Yeah! Unfortunately I had to complete the challenge alone as my long suffering husband had to drop out at wk 4 owing to his 72 yr old sciatic leg! I cannot believe that I can now run for 40 mins without stopping. I managed to do 2.9 miles. I have 8 weeks before I take part in the Race for Life. I will be going on holiday for a week on Friday so have decided to take a well earned rest. Does that mean I will have to start at week 7 or 8 again on my return or should I just carry on with the 40 min runs. ( When I say run I mean a fast jog!) but my 70 yr old psyche keeps telling me I AM A RUNNER.
