8r1 done. What, 3 minutes more!

Last night after a hard day's work and a delayed flight, I still had enough in the tank and some enthusiasm to run the first run of week 8. I do not read ahead and was surprised to hear Laura tell me I had to run a whole 3 minutes more. i.e. 28 minutes run.

It is a testament to the programme, as I did not struggle at all and finished with enough energy to increase my speed in the last minute or so.

Looking forward to the next run!

That's great to hear! The end of the programme is in sight, and it's wonderful that the extra 3 minutes didn't cause you any problems. You'll be a graduate before you know it :)


Thanks for your comments. Really believing it now!


I felt better with this run, but think I took it slower at the beginning so had energy at the end, unlike my last 25 minute run:)

Not long until Graduation Shinjin, hope it goes well :D


Thanks for the feedback,

I kept my pace up deliberately and all was OK. I will try again today and see if I can keep at this level.
