After my poor showing for the last run of week 8 I decided not to repeat it but to go on to week 9 run 1. A 30 minute run. Conditions were perfect, a nice morning for it and I had plenty of time.
Well I did the run avoiding the usual dogs, horses, prams and faster runners.
The sports-tracker app give me a bit of a shock, claiming that I had run 6.9 km. This seemed unlikely and looking at the map on their site, it was clearly off, with lots of weird spikes where the GPS was doing something strange. Checked the length of the route on mapmyrun.com and it was more like 5.3 km. Which is more like it and a distance I am still perfectly happy with. I can start to try to improve the distance but no rush really.
Wow. Just two more runs to go. Lots of thoughts about the programme and how it has affected me but I'll save that till graduation time I think.
