Finally Graduated... YAY!

So thanks to all this impromptu heat I've found it difficult to keep up with my runs this week. I attempted to go out on Thursday at about 10 in the morning but only managed 2.5k before I had to back down and admit defeat, I got dizzy and really felt like I was about to faint, so I thought it best to call it a day. So on Saturday I set my alarm for 5 in the morning (I get up that time to get into work on a weekday anyway so it wasn't too evil) and managed to complete my 3rd 30 minute run. I wont pretend it was remotely easy, about half way through the sun started belting down on me, but thankfully I was already in my stride so just trudged on. By the end of it I was about ready to die, but I was SO pleased that I managed to get through it and now I can call myself a graduate!

Sadly I spent the rest of the day trying to dig up bushes from my garden and now have the tightest hamstrings known to man, so a run today is out of the question (I can barely walk!) but hopefully I'll be back on the streets running in a couple of days time working on post graduation success!

  • Many congratulations, its really hard keeping going in the heat so well done you. Another rest day will be better than trying to go out when you know your legs are not recovered yet.

    Don't forget to send an email to JR21 found in Admin to say you have completed the program and can you get your badge. It took seconds to get mine. :P nice one.

  • Amazing. Congratulations. I'd go for a short slow run today if I were you, I think it'll loosen your muscles up, it did for me the other day. Again, congratulations graduate.

  • Congratulations. I am struggling finding the right time to go for runs in this heat too , gardening is a great exercise also at east your out doing something. Well done , keep up the runs and keep us posted x
