Just after completing w8r2, I went down with the traditional end-of-term chest infection (it always seems to happen just in time for Christmas...). After almost a month off, I just completed w8r3!
Not knowing how my lungs would cope, I had planned to just head out on a short route and just see how I felt. After the usual first 5-minutes of feeling knackered I actually started to feel ok, so I carried on.
So run (and week 8) complete! My pace was a bit slower than the other two week 8 runs, but that’s not really surprising. Thanks to everyone who gave me advice last month
Looking forward to w9r1 - but not until the weekend!
