Hi Everyone, Finally remembered how to get into my blog-this site is sooo confusing!
Went out today-loads of dogs-I swear they'd all come just to see if I'd turn up! Good run today. One lady (they know how to time it now, lol!) said as I approached her "You're running very fast!" I replied, was I? I have no idea how fast I'm going so thank you very much! It made a difference to the rest of the run-the scenery WAS flying by!! I just hadn't noticed, focusing on my feet, my breathing, saying hello to people (and dogs), but this lady had brought it to my attention. My little legs were going like pistons-or was that only because I take short steps? :-). I finished on a high-then suddenly felt weepy as I realised that on Friday I would be saying a silent goodbye to Laura-the one person who had kept me on track and made reaching this goal possible with her encouragement and advice along the way.
On my warm down walk I'd gone around 3 minutes towards the car park, and was just calculating whether I needed to walk on past a bit before the 5m was up, when a lady dog walker called out to me and I stopped to speak to her. She told me that she was so impressed with my running having seen me from the start, and could I tell her more about it. So, I told her about C-5K, how it is structured enabling you to achieve your goal in 9 weeks, and how to find the website. I added that if she knew anybody, then please tell them-no money to pay except for a decent pair of trainers and an ipod or iphone. I said I will see her on Friday. I will be unmissable in my bright yellow and black T shirt, with the logo over it, as it is my Graduation Run. I intend to make it a fun run-pointing to the logo as I go by people and saying I'm a Graduate, I've done it-so anyone can!!
So pleased, as my husbands op has been postponed until Monday morning-so I can drop him off at the hospital on my way to go on my run. He will now be at home when I get there, so will have someone to share with
