Was going to put that title the other way round but as I really do feel that my C25K experience is the start of something new then Wk9 is just the end of the beginning of my running journey.
Was determined to get this run in today as I'd like R3 to be during daylight somewhere nice at the weekend. As it was didn't leave work until after 6.30 then had to take daughter 2 to band practice but like I say determined - so off I set dodging trick or treaters along the way.
At 5 minutes I felt dreadful - but have to credit IannodaTruffe for providing me with the nerve to always keep going when the gremlins kick in early - I just tell myself it's the 'toxic ten' minutes I can't worry about how it's going until I've been running for that long - and it worked again - by 10 minutes was into my stride (get me!) ... And I just have to say 30 MINUTES! 😀😀😀Smashed it! So so chuffed and slightly disbelieving - no way I'd have thought it possible 10 weeks ago!
Can't thank all of you on here enough for the support that's got me this far. Please keep on inspiring me with all your amazing efforts and I reckon I might just make it to graduation.
