Week 9 Completed

Week 9 Completed

Hey guys . Well may as well be honest now . I left this longer than i'd like and last night we had pizza at work haha. Absolutely knew i'd regret it but after this i consider it my pre-celebration grub. So i definitely regretted that this morning. I had 2 hours sleep after i got in from work at 7am. Then had to vacate the house and we had a viewing at 11am as the house is now on the market. I went for a 40 minute power walk around the town and came home to relax . I filled up with 4 pints of water and i said to myself when this passes through I'm damn well running!

Hour later and the water gates were opened. I kitted up and drove to the gym . Wasn't my outdoors run as planned but it had to be done. I felt more comfortable here today. And i will get on to outdoors and hills next.

The run went better than expected. Almost like routine now. No problems. Sweat like a burst pipe and not one single stitch.!! A first!

Finished up and went and topped it off with a 3 k row.

So here we go . That's a wrap

Thanks guys for your support and Stevy I'll be posting some fund to your chosen charity on the 27th. I'll message you for details.

Rich.

Yeah I was initially really against doing the plan and it seems pretty silly now looking back at my early posts. But here I am . Nailed it. :D
