So here we are -- me & Laura. It's been grand, building our relationship slowly with time. In the early days, I confess that I was a tad hostile. She was always so chipper, even when I was completely knackered. I must admit that I wasn't above cursing at her every now and then at the start.
After awhile, however, we developed an understanding. We got to know each other and, as we did, we got to like each other. Well, I got to like her. Not sure what she thinks. Still, it's been good.
Yet, after all that, here we are at the end of our road. Today is the day for Week 9 Run 3. The end of an era. The only thing that I'm waiting for is the rain to stop, as I would prefer not to go out in this downpour. I will, though, if it continues. I'm not going to let Laura down, and I'm not going to let myself down, either. We've been a pretty good team, and I mean to finish what we started.
Seriously, folks, all humour aside, this really is it! This evening, I tackle the last run of the programme -- Week 9 Run 3. I would rather not get drenched, but if that's what it takes, so be it. I'm not going to let a little rain stop me. Or a lot of rain, which is what we have now.
It's been amazing watching my progress develop over the past nine weeks. I started my Couch to 5K on Friday August 24th (at the start of the bank holiday weekend). Now I'm nearly there.
I will comment on this entry later, once I am done, to report in... and, of course, to request my "GRADUATE" banner! Then it is on to future goals, like bringing up my speed, attempting the 5K+ podcasts, and starting to work my way up to 10k.
Stay tuned, gentle readers...
