I did w9r1 last Thursday and r2 on Sunday so I didn't want to put it off another day. Too hot yesterday but I don't usually run Wednesdays after a full day standing for 8 hours in a busy library. So even though I had a ballroom dance class and only got home at 8.45 I thought 'sod it, I'm going for it!'
So maybe a few turns around the dance floor with hubby - waltzing, quickstep, cha cha and fiddly foxtrot - is just the right way to prepare for a warm-up then a 30 minute run!
It has always been my ambition through the 9 weeks to run 'round the block' like hundreds of others around my village. It has been just right for me as its just under 5k including my walks. And I did it too!
So that was it! Cooler evening, roads bit quieter. tea settled and a bit of ballroom = a good winning run to round off this fantastic program.
So turning 50 as an overweight, exercise-phobe, with high blood pressure heading for the menopause is not all bad news!
Now who's the chap I message to get my shiny badge?
