Today's runs!

Don't worry, I don't mean I did more than one run today. Just wanted to say:

hello to the newbies and congrats on starting, there seem to be a few W1R1's around, congrats to the week 5ers, and the recent grads too! And, well, everyone else :D

I managed to finish week 8, slightly damp evening and a few buggy-passing incidents aside (one woman gave me a long look and I kept wondering if I hadn't left her enough room or if I'd sweated on her child or something), it was ok. I finished on a downhill which made it seem like I could keep running for ever so the last 30 seconds felt a bit cheat-worthy but I definitely had an uphill bit earlier which should have counted for something!

Bring on week 9 ... eek!

bahahaha! Erm ... I don't think I put any on at all today! Perhaps that explains it...

I was already feeling self conscious as I went past my neighbour on the way out, who runs marathons on the regular, and there's me in my "running ninja" special outfit...these leggings were better than my last though, I have to retire those ... Am really needing some "proper activewear" now!

also I should say I do usually put deodorant on if I'm planning on being near other people!

Well done, only 3 more to go!! Sweated on her child, love it! Running is running, downhill is perfectly valid and not a cheat. I don't even do hills (yet.... all in good time!!). Sounds like you are doing a blinding job you've come so far. We can crack these dodgy peeps now we have an arsenal of ideas up our sleeves :) :) :)

To end on a down you must have gone up, therefore you deserve the downhill treat at the end. Well done on finishing week 8!
