W7R3 done.

Well there is Week 7 (or 8 in my case) done. I decided to do all 3 runs over the same route to see if I improved or fell back. Including the warm-up/down: 8:30/Km, 7.55,/Km, 7.50/Km. I think I was a bit too cautious on run 1, but really enjoyed the last 5 minutes - which are slightly downhill, which encouraged me for the next 2.

I know it's dangerous, but I am getting quietly confident now.

Good man - you’ve got this. Great times there, too. Mine average just worse than 9mins/k.

Thanks Jay. The encouragement on here has become all important to me.

It’s basically what got me through. It does make a huge difference knowing others are behind you (and watching to make sure you run)!
