Yeahhh!! I have just completed my W8!!
I want to try completing the 9th week and graduating before the end of April. As I have written before, I have my hand surgery on 30th so I got to finish this before that. Well, I don’t HAVE TO, but WANT TO graduate by 30th!
I did a morning run on Saturday (my morning runs are not the best), that was my W8R2 but the MP3 gave away due to low battery! I realised that I was so depended on the music because I just stopped running for 5-10 seconds and then started again but could not run without the music! So I walked back the rest while running a bit and walking a bit. I was not very happy because it was the last 10 minutes! I tried again on Sunday morning and that was good, did usual 5K under 34 minutes. I was so determined to do today too after work. I ran my 28 minutes, but nothing more. I see some of my fellow runners do W8 and run a bit more but I find it too hard to run that ‘bit more’! I feel so tired at the end but get the life back when I do the warming down walk. When I come home, I do few stretching exercises for about 5 minutes.
I know it is not the speed as Laura says but the distance, but I do a bit of ‘speed’ as much as I can do (not much though!!) because I want to finish the Race for Life that I have signed up to do in July under 30 minutes as my personal goal. I think I did my personal best today by running the 5K in 31 minutes 50 seconds. Never run that fast before. I should be happy but I feel a bit disappointed because I really had to push myself to do it. Am I being silly?? Am I not really fit as I should be?? Should I feel tired?? Please tell me!! Any advice, suggestion, comment is very much appreciated! Many thanks!
