Hi all, this morning I did the last run of week 9 and finished the C25K app! Loved it all the way. The weather was a sunny 12deg with a slight breeze, tshirt weather, so took off the windproof jacket during the warm up. The farmer has now moved cows with little calves into the lambs field. They do make you laugh when they are watching you at the fence and when they jump around 😀.
Reading all your run reports has made me pay a lot more attention to where I am running, much more than usual anyway, and since it was the graduation run today I remembered to take some pics as well. It is like a little Scottish bingo card! I start the run by passing the kiltmakers on the main street. Then when leaving the village I pass the haggis and black pudding factory. I make it to whisky barrel storage facility at the half way point where you can actually smell the whisky on a calm day. I can see hills in the distance. It strikes me that if I ever do increase to 10km it'll take me past a field of highland cows and a golf course and bowling green. A half marathon would tick off the shortbread factory. I think the only thing missing is a Loch - of which there are none!
I just want to say thanks to everyone for the encouragement and tips. It has helped a lot and I'm sure it's what's got me to the end of the app without giving up. You are an amazing group of people 👏 I think I'm feeling quite emotional now 😊
