Well tomorrow sees me start Week 9 R1 but the last week I’ve been concerned and need to ask a question. I know now that in 3 runs time I will be completing runs of 30 minutes as on my last couple of runs I could have run for a few more minutes - who would have thought. However unlike most of you I have done this in 7 weeks and most of this has been done on a treadmill. Not to take an easy option but mainly because I do my training before work so it’s dark and I train alone.In a couple of weeks I’m going to try and change this and get out on the roads at least twice a week
However I’m really nervous in case I can’t do what I’ve been doing on a treadmill . I sort of feel maybe I have cheated by doing it on a treadmill. On the other hand 7 weeks ago I couldn’t run for more than a minute. Although this is a stepping stone to my marathon training in January I really want that first accolade of graduating but only if I’ve earned it.
