Good God! I nearly forgot to blog this, I had two days between runs ha ha!

I must say I needed it! I was like a young person who could actually run.

Thirty minutes with no pain in my (deep breath) knees, lower back, thigh, neck and ankle.

Hey not so much of a big list after all! Lol

After the run and the cool down and stretch I felt like a new 48 year old lol, but on a more serious note isn't it great reading about everyone moving further through the weekly podcasts, makes me feel fantastic and plasters a grin on my face all the time!

Roll on the next one.

All the best

I often find leaving two days between runs makes me run better too! :)

Well done to the new young Dale ;) Not long to go now and then you will certainly have a big grin on your face!!



Thank you Sue


good work Dale, I've been following your blogs as we seem to be at the same point in the program! It's been a while since I've had a two day break, maybe that's what I need to really push on. Keep going - we will be done in a couple of weeks!


Sounds like a really good run, Dale! Welcome to the new you! :)


Yipppeeee Dale! Or should I call you soon-to-be graduate? As a soon to be 50 year old who decided to take up running at 49.5, I giggled at your list. It is few and far between when I have a pain-free run. Something always hurts! Very well done and looking forward to reading your continued journey! Gayle


You're nearly there! You're doing brilliantly! I'm looking forward to your graduation blog! So glad this one was pain free :)
