"One more run to go after this" That's what I kept telling myself to day as I completed W9R2.
I still haven't worked out if that's good or bad. You see I've come to the conclusion that I like the structure of the program, the weekly goals, and the big goal at the end, you know the one!
I'm about to graduate in a couple of days, and that feels brilliant, but what I think I'm going to miss is the structure and rapid, demonstrable, improvements that this program has given me. If it wasn't for them, I think I'd have given up weeks ago having driven myself into the floor rather than taking a path steady improvements each week.
I have entered a 5k Santa Dash in at the beginning of December to keep my motivation up, But I think I really need to sit down soon and think about where I go next. I am fearful that without the structure, I will just find excuses not to continue. I don't want that, but I recognise that it is in my nature.
To finish on a positive note, the running part of today's workout was 4.8k so I think that means I was about 200m short of the 5k in 30 mins. Tantalisingly close! A couple of rest days now with graduation on Wednesday in the dark, I may need a sprint finish to hit 5k!
