W8R1 still plodding along

W8R1 still plodding along

For the first time since starting the C25K programme, I had two rest days. Bank holiday was obviously one reason but also hubby's away next weekend from Friday, and I've got a busy day on Friday (promotion interview 😲) so Tuesday and Thursday suited us better!

Today was the first 28 inure run so an increase of three minutes - it's odd to think back to previous weeks and when I wasn't sure if I could manage a 30 second increase and here I am not really that phased by three extra minutes!

After the bank holiday, the beach was quite full of litter and abandoned single use bbqs etc (although I will praise the Bournemouth seafront team for doing a Stirling effort of cleaning up early in the morning) - this meant that little Aura was in doggy heaven, sniffing out all the bbq sites and trying to find a abandoned tasty but sandy morsels. The upshot of this was that hubby hung back to make sure she didn't eat anything too horrific and I did the majority of the run alone!

I changed my music choice today and went for my favourite musical sound track of all time - Starlight Express! Internally singing along definitely helped the time go quicker and as always, after the halfway point, the time flew!

So five runs left before I'm programme free and I must admit, I'm quite liking the sense of achievement and even the early starts, they do seem to be quite good at settling my day up well!
