Almost there!

Well I’m taking it steady and taking it slowly - yes I’ve been listening OldFloss but I am getting there

Ran further than ever today 4.4km on W9R2- and it felt GOOOOOOD

Tried a different route - instead of a circular route with a return run after the halfway bell I just kept running and running and running

Although I had an idea of where I might get to I couldn’t be certain

Of course I would need to get back to my starting point somehow - so pre-run I booked the services of my chauffeur - aka hubby!!

I gave an estimate of finish time /place but said I’d ring to confirm - and off I went ........

Warm up walk completed the run began - initially on usual route Halfway bell rings - a little disappointed not to have reached W9R1 halfway point but on I went

Past the 1st of my possible end point

Past the last of my possible end points

.... and up some (small) hills too!

Finally finishing off with 5 min walk and ringing my chauffeur - who was surprised by my requested pick up point

It was only after getting back home that I discovered I had actually run 0.6km further that previous run 😊

Graduation Run not until Sunday as I’m doing the Nottingham Poppy Run

How a-maz-zing is C25k?

Well done to you. Same run for me today and I also had the chauffeured pickup so was able to just keep running without turning around which is unusual. Can't wait to hear about your graduation run. Sounds amazing.
