So far, week 9 has taken me 32 days.......
Just over a month ago I sustained a calf injury within the first 3 minutes of w9r1. It was bad enough to make me phone home for a lift as I couldn't walk. It took 12 days until I felt up to trying it again and I completed w9r1 20 days ago, albeit at a reduced speed. A couple of days after that I attempted r2, but had to give up about 12 minutes in as I could feel my calf pulling again.
Almost 3 weeks later I finally found myself in a position to try again. I thought about going back to week 7, but as I had taken a gentle jog around a local lake at the weekend following my 6 year old daughter on her bike and felt great afterwards, I decided to at least have a go at rejoining where I left off. I headed out yesterday evening at a very early 6pm (I usually don't go until at least 9.30) and completed w9r2 at last!!
This could well be graduation week. Fingers crossed!!
