I finished Week 8 this morning, and it was a good run. Sun was shining, air was crisp, and there were some nice muddy bits to run through
I found Week 7 such a mental battle, and am glad to report that Week 8 has been much friendlier to me I think this is partly because there's more feedback from Laura, and also partly just because I'm getting used to longer runs.
Recently when Laura encourages us to really give it loads for the last minute, I've sprinted for 20 seconds and then reverted to a crawl ... but today I gave it 100% (well, 90ish ) and realized that I am still getting fitter
I am really surprised at myself for getting this far, and can't wait to run again on Thursday and be able to say 'I ran for 30 minutes!'
