So, I'm on Week 9

I completed my first run of the week on Sunday, which went well. I had a cold and just decided not to let that stop me.

I had an unexpected set back. I was supposed to complete the second run yesterday, but my cold kicked in even worse, plus the weather wasn't great so I chose to stay in.

I'm still a bit bunged up and still coughing a bit, but the weather looks much better, so I'm still going to go for it. I can't just backslide after all I've achieved. I am so near the finish line now, I can taste it. Obstacles do arise the closer you are to victory sometimes, just to test your resolve!

No matter what, I will graduate by Friday 7th June, come what may!

Your positive mindset will get you there. Well done and good luck for Friday. (I'm 2 weeks behind you) ;-)

Wahay! Good for you. You might stop coughing once you get out there and open up your chest as you run. I found I stopped coughing after a recent bad bout 🙂 I started sucking a cough sweet as soon as I started my run, one of those honey and menthol jobs

Nearly there now! Ooooer 😃

I completed the second run last night. One more run to do on Friday, then I'm done. :)
