That's week 7 finished!

This morning I went out for a run in the rain, not really sure of where I was going. I am staying at my sister's house at the moment and I thought I might head towards the park and run there. My first problem was that I had to cross a main road to get there and, as it was already busy, I didn't cross where I wanted to and ended up going the long way round. This run also involved something that, living in Cambridge, I'm going to call hills. Well, gradients, anyhow. I'm just not used to that!

Anyway, I made it to the park and discovered that running in grass that needs cutting is not terribly easy, so as soon as Laura told me I was half way through, I decided to head back the way I came. I did still manage a little burst of extra speed for the last minute, but this was definitely the hardest of the 25min runs I've done.

Still, I have now finished week 7. My next run (on Sunday) is the Race for Life. I'm really hoping that I can keep going and run the entire thing.
