Only one week to go till I graduate. I have celebrated my progress by registering for Parkrun. Eeek! As I am definitely not going to even jog 2 miles when I do my 30 minutes, I need to build up a bit of speed before I actually join in. I have set myself the target of doing Parkrun by the end of September and want to do RFL next year. I'm getting ahead of myself - I have not even graduated yet!
On todays run I had 2 firsts. I tackled a 'hill'. Well it was definitely an upward gradient although a seasoned runner probably would not have noticed it. Also made an effort to go a bit faster each time I felt in control of my breathing. All the while in the pouring rain, wearing a rainproof jacket where I ended up almost as soggy inside, as out.
