Yesterday I completed W8R2 (I am still amazed that I have come this far) and am planning on R3 on Tuesday. When tracking the running element of W8, I run about 3.5K during 28 minutes. I had to do the same journey later by car and was surprised at the distance I had covered.
On Wednesday I am going on holiday for 3 weeks and I will take my trainers with me and intend to complete W9 while I am away. After that the plan is to complete a few more 30 minutes runs while on holiday. At that stage I am not too worried about distance. I have already arranged a 30 minutes run with a friend a couple of days after I come back to ensure that good habits continue.
What I have also already done, is register for the 5K Race for Life at the end of May. This means a lot to me having had a couple of scares myself and having had to say good bye to three lovely ladies because of cancer in 2017. I am thinking of doing a few park runs in preparation to get a better idea of the distance, even if I have to walk part of it. Now is it realistic to think that I could manage to cover 5 K by then or am I being too ambitious. What is the best way to go about it.
This is when distance will start to matter as I would like to run the whole distance.
