Graduation and a PB

telford_mike
telford_mikeGraduate

I probably over-prepared for W9R3 - a sensible meal of fish and boiled potatoes last night, and no beer at all. Mrs t_m set off ahead of me while I tuned-in to Ken Bruce and woke MJ up from his slumbers. I was really hyped-up for the run. Predictably I set off way too fast, and caught up with Mrs t_m in a new PB of 12 minutes. She got a nice snap of me as I ran past. Once I'd slowed down a bit the run went well.

So that’s that. I'll consolidate over the next few weeks while I decide where this journey is going to take me next.

Thanks to those who selflessly run this forum - it’s a wonderfully supportive place and I believe it makes a real difference to our chances of success. And a huge thanks to my fellow members on here for sharing your experiences and providing endless encouragement.

Omg possibly the prettiest scenery ever! ❤️❤️

Massive congratulations on your achievements. Bet you’re proud as proud can be! Very well done!

I’m off to Munich and Garmisch Partenkirchen where I’ll be doing W7 and W8 shortly. Hoping for some pretty alpine scenery in the latter too! 😀
