I decided not to try week 9 run despite have a 5k run on Saturday. Do 2 minutes make that much difference? I wanted to see if I could improve on the runs I've had. The weather conditions were better than recently which must help , but mainly my mental attitude was better. I was determined to give it as much as possible. Guess what! I ran 28 minutes with a tiny break halfway round. It wasn't exactly comfortable but I kept thinking of all the encouragement I've had here. I wanted to do the race thinking I could do it , not that I couldn't. Next bulletin with be after the race!
