Used that extra hour to FINISH!

Well sort of - Given my son still doesn't do clocks changing I decided to do my Wk9R3 on Sunday morning - and after a week of pitch black runs it was lovely to be out in the sunshine - albeit it was very cold.

So Talking Heads on the playlist this time - had to concentrate on my pace as got a bit carried away - and I still cant run up the hill that occurs about 1.5km in - but I kept going at brisk walk and started again at the top and did 3.5km in 30 minutes.

So does that count??

Well for me it does - I Can Not Believe I can "run" (it is still a jog really) for 30 minutes - or that when I do slow to a brisk walk, I start up again! Am so chuffed with myself I spent Sunday with a huge smile on my face.

I am determined that I will do 5km by the year end - and have just changed my rundouble app to distance to build myself up.

Treated myself to a graduation t-shirt - with sleeves for those early morning starts- and am honestly looking forward to tomorrow morning for Wk10R1 and the next goal :-)

Happy Running Everyone
