I'm taking a view again tomorrow as to whether it's too early to get going on W8.
Sue my next run in Wed morning if it don't rain on me. Have I got the slowest running speed of all us? I bet you've heard the story about the turtle and the hare haven't you? I'm just gonna try and complete the program, then I'll work on speed. I'm not registered for a 5k so I'm not in a big hurry but I do want to finish. Stay strong guys, your doing great!Cardiochick wrote:I've been working and sleeping. Back to running this afternoon. Wk 8 r2. At this point I hope to just keep running. Dont have enough time to work on speed. I'm not ready for this 5k. More ready than if I hadn't started this program, but I wish I had another 2 weeks to prepare!! Oh well. On the up note, work is done for the next 2 weeks!! Yay!!! I hope you feel better and can run today, Robin. Be careful!! You seemed to be pretty close to my running speed before your injury. When is your next run, Linda? You may be the only one finishing on time!! I Plan to do w8r2 today, wk9 r1 tomorrow and w9r2 Thurs before my flight. Then repeat week 9 to officially finish when I get home. Prob finish June 25 or so.
Linda, I skipped to my wk 9 r1 today. I'm not going to run again till my 5k on Sat. It was an awesome run. Instead of focusing on my time , I was focused on distance. I found myself wishing for more time as the 30 min mark approached. I even ( for the most part) regulated my breathing. I never thought I'd wish for more time!!! I ran 2.7 miles in 30 min. Im ok with that.
Having a 5k to work towards is real good motivation. I highly suggest signing up for one that is scheduled within a month or 2. You'll be ready. If you sign up for one let me know. I'd do it with you.
I hope everyone is mending and getting back to running soon.
I'll be in touch after my trip.
I'm aiming to get back in the saddle on Saturday (home location) or Sunday (weekday work location) and just hope my knee holds out, if not it's straight off to my doctor in case it is a cartilage problem which could be a bad thing.
Simon - just go for it and good job Laura and Linda. Soon be on W9 ladies!
