Week 8 completed

My 9 yr old grandson came with me today to make sure I was fine running in the woods. I have not done a run yet without support from at least one member of my family. I suspect they still think I might keel over any minute. Anyway learning from Thursday's mistake of overdressing I set off more suitably dressed. I've still no idea what distance I've covered but 9yr old covered the distance so easily, back and forth and even walking while I slowly and steadily ran for the 28 minutes. I did it, that is week 8 done and only 2 extra minutes to run next week. It is only a few weeks since I struggled running for 2 minutes. I will probably grin for the whole weekend now.

  • Week 8 is very impressive - and your family still don't believe you can run! Nice of them to go with you though :)

  • I agree, it is lovely having the company and now that I can also talk a bit when I 'run' it is especially nice to run with my grandsons.

  • Wow! What a lovely family!! Good on you for achieving so much, I am on week 7 and dreading it!:( xxx
