So, this morning we did The first week 9 run, but the omens were not good to start with! I had the most awful night sleep, 3 hours all told, just couldn't get to the land of nod at all, must have been the excitement of week 9 looming!
Anyway, got up at ridiculous o'clock and headed to the park, and it was there that all the planets became aligned. The weather was perfect, and the park nearly empty as all the sane people were still in bed. Off we went, and right from the start I just knew I was going to do it. We varied our route as usual, taking in some ups and downs, and our pace was a little faster, and I made sure on the flat parts I put in a bit more effort.
Came across a few early dog walkers, all really friendly! After not much time, MJ said we were halfway through, much to my amazement as I felt really good. On we went, and at the final 60 seconds I still felt strong and when MJ said slow down, I just wanted to do I bit more, So did another minute or so! What a difference to last week, finally feel like it's all clicking into place!
I just wanted to share what was a really special run with you all, thanks for reading the long post. Happy running all 🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️
