First post W9 post!

No finish line need today and I was free to do what I liked so what did I do? Put Sarah back on just in case I stopped too soon!! Of all my 30 min runs (that still looks strange written in black and white) this was my best as I stopped at 30 minutes and managed 4.29k. I’m still working towards 5k. Thought I’d get further today because it would be cooler (it wasn’t) but after only 2 minutes knew it’d be a struggle (maybe because I’ve spent about 10 hours in a car over the last 2 days). Thanks to Sarah I kept going though and returned home through this beautiful copse of trees. There’s life (and running) after week 9!

Haha! Well done on completing the programme 😊 I held on to Sarah’s apron strings for my own first post-grad run last week but today I flew solo for the first time 😳 Apps like MapMyWalk can keep you right for time & distance - it works for me with a bit of music behind. Good luck taking your running forwards 👍🏼

Thank you. I’ve got Garmin but don’t think it gives me updates.

That looks a lovely spot. Now if only we could have a 5k circuit that was all like that!

That would be fab. It’s flat too!! My favourite.

Well done! Enjoy your consolidation runs, you can just let your feet choose wherever they want to take you now 👍😊

Will do but I notice I’m still hill phobic!! Plan 3 weeks of this (as recommended) then will reconsider my goals.
