Hi all, big smile here, I have just completed run 9.3!
After having concentrated the last few runs on my usual hilly course, I wanted to finish in style on the much easier flat riverside course. I ran for 34:12 minutes and covered 6.05km! When I went for run 1.1 on 15th March, I would never have thought this to be possible.
Now I will enjoy two rest days (actually gardening with the wife) and reward myself with a nice sushi family dinner tomorrow.
The plan after that is to keep the weekly routine of three runs alternating the flat and the hilly course. I want to do this for the next 4 weeks in order to prove myself that I am capable of keeping this up without the disciplining effect of Laura's podcast. Then I will see, probably gradually lengthening the riverside run.
For all of you out there in the middle of C25K and thinking about starting it: go for it! This is the best gift I ever made myself!
