Week 9 is on the horizon

Thanks for all the laughs and encouragement for my plan to wear running gear all day under my work clothes. I did it, and got my W8R3 run in (although it turned out to be a poor choice of route - no marked tracks, rubble underfoot and quite steep gradients in places, and dusk was falling quite quickly - I won't do that again). I can't believe how close I am to graduating, nor how much I am beginning to enjoy running. Looking forward to going out on a familiar route on Sunday.

Happy Saturday to all, especially those just starting out - I was so unfit back in September, and my legs felt like lead weights as I tried to pick them up. I have followed the programme pretty strictly since November and it works! Take it slowly, and come here for advice and encouragement; you'll feel great in no time.

Well done! Isn't it incredible the places this programme makes you run in? We've become so hooked that there's no way we're going to miss a run, wherever it is ;-)

Happy weekend and enjoy the Sunday's run!
