Although this is my w9r2, it is now my third 30 min run (I used the 10k app instead of c25k on week8r3 which was 30 minutes instead of 28) Jeez... This is not getting any easier! I normally go out about 7am but I held off until 9ish hoping that the rain would stop but it didn't. About half way through, I couldn't get past someone on the path with their brolly and had to go onto a busy road (they must have heard my heavy breathing as i was nearly dying at this point grrr)Then just after that, the road I had to cross was too busy with cars and there were lots of people at the bus stop which is where I have a small hill to climb. Well, it put me off and I took the shorter route instead and then cut through the park near to where I should have been on the other route. I have to say I am a bit cheesed off! I had it in my mind to do the same route as last time as I mapped it for exactly 5k.
I am hoping that I can get out earlier on my final run and that it doesn't rain. I feel it went against me today. I think I only did 4.55k in 30 minutes slower than last time. Surely I shouldn't be getting worse. Anyway rant over with.
