Week 8 and 9

On W8R3 I was running along when I noticed I had a nice view of my shadow. It was like a funhouse-mirror shadow, all long and lean (cool), but because some strands of hair had escaped my ponytail there were all sorts of squiggly things waving around my shadow's head, reminding me of Medusa (not cool). Note to self, buy some bobby pins. :P

W9R1 went fairly well. My pace was a little slower than the last 2 runs because I wanted to make sure I could get through the 30 minutes. But I do feel good that I was able to twice push myself to overtake fast walkers. Nothing like taking forever to catch up to a walker so you can speed-shuffle-jog past them and hope you get far enough ahead so they don't end up walking by you after you'd already passed them. :D

Funny! I couldnt have summed it up better myself :-)

Well done for overtaking dog walkers!

(I was *overtaken by* a dog walker in my graduation run - which could have knocked my confidence badly, but in fact it amused me so much that I ended up running for longer, so it wasn't all bad!)

I love running with my shadow! And I think she looks like more of a runner than I do (of course she doesn't have the red sweaty face)
