Yesterday was my first run in Week 8. I really struggled with week 7 and though I completed each run, my pace was slower and I had to fight with myself to keep running the whole way.
I had a 3-day break between week 7, day 3 and week 8, day 1. I planned on a Monday run, but it was pouring outside. On Tuesday, it was pouring again! I had to go though. I'm so afraid to 'fall off the wagon'. So, I went.
Not only did I go, but I was able to run further and faster than I ever had! I was averaging close to 9/km pace, but this time I was able to run 4.2km with an 8:29/km pace! I started during a slow rain and ended up getting poured on, but it was so very worth it. I was soaked - and smiling - when I got home.
I'm now dreading the end of the week. Though I'm proud of the accomplishment, I'm worried about how I'll do once the app is completed.
Any recommendations on what to do once the Couch to 5K is finished?
