After postponing from this morning I finally did my final (C25K) run.
It was my first ever run in the evening after work, which was weird and my first under 11 minutes a mile and to top it all my first mile was 9:59!
I think that being excited about finishing and running at the wrong end of the day messed up my pacing a bit and I didn't run as far as in my first 2 week 9 runs as when Laura said stop I was more than ready too and it was a bit of a struggle to carry on until I had done 3 miles (32 minutes), but I did it.
Now I am going to take a 3 day rest before trying the Stepping Stone podcast, and I'm ordering a C25K running top to celebrate.
To all those who are struggling, particularly with their knees, take heart, I have spent nearly as many weeks resting with injuries as I have doing the runs, but weeks 8 & 9 have just flown by.
I've a lot to thank the NHS for, and this just adds to the list. I just hope that this excellent work continues before someone screws it up by trying to make money out of it
