I have found week 9 quite difficult. It's amazing how an extra two minutes can make such a difference. I think part of the problem has been that I was trying to see if I could run faster instead of just being satisfied with completing the time. Anyway, I am thrilled to say that this morning at 6.00 a.m. I completed W9R3 and I felt absolutely wonderful. I am unsure what to do next. I think I will gradually increase my time, maybe a couple of minutes each run to see how long it takes me to complete the 5K and then maybe move on to the stepping stones podcast. Here goes!
