Good morning running pals,
This morning I completed the last run of week 8. My goodness, if you had asked me in week 1 whether I would still be running 7 weeks later, I am not sure I would have had the confidence to say yes! But here I am.
It wasn't my favourite run – I enjoyed the last 2 28 min runs but this one felt a bit harder. Not sure why, apart from the fact that I was a little tired this morning, work has been kicking my ar*e a bit this week and I had trouble getting to sleep last night. Am sure that had some effect. But! When the going got tough, I just slowed down. Running through a park in long grass felt a bit hard work too, and my knees were a bit wobbly during the cool down walk, but after my usual stretches I feel okay.
Most of all, I feel like a runner. I am super proud of myself. I love the way running makes me feel.
Day off work today and tomorrow thank god. I have decided to reward myself a bit and go visit the lovely Run and Become store in Victoria to have a gait analysis and buy some new runners. Very excited about that!
In other news, the zombies didn't get me.
