So there you go. Run 3 happened today and it was a back to back with run 2 yesterday. I chose to do a back to back for several reasons but mostly because I always committed the runs 1, 2 and 3 to be in the same weeks. I kinda wanted to do my usual trail, where I started however this loop is 7K+ which I would have to commit to (run + extra walk). As I done Run 2 yesterday I thought this would probably not the wisest idea. I therefore decided to finish off on the road, on that 6K loop I ran all week and end of week 8.
I ran slowly, ran fairly consistently and I am experiencing no pain. just the feeling of after big exercise! Fun fact after I got changed from running. It a fairly cold day today and could feel areas of my legs that were way warmer than others. Never thought this would be noticeable and painted an interesting picture of the muscles that do all the work when running.
I must say I am disappointed the app did not change the audio for the last run. I would have loved the mighty Michael to cheer me to the finish line!
So... after last night's BBQ (made awesome pork ribs btw) I treated myself with a plancha cheese toastie off the BBQ again as a celebratory treat!
So there you go. I finished the program. I think I "inspired" my wife to start it with friends of hers. I am somewhat slimmer, I breathe better (that is freaking weird btw), my body shape entirely changed and have registered to a 10K in June.
Next, setting my gizmos so that I run for 5K, then 6K etc to 10K... never know. I might even stretch to 20K this year!
