Armed with the whistle we set off. I'd forgotten that notpheidippides' hearing isn't so good and he had difficulty hearing the signal to walk when I blew gently so in the end it had to be a full emergency style whistle! The dogs in the park took no notice thank goodness
We passed one of the dog walkers 3 times and each time it was whilst we were walking - he never saw us run so must have thought we were a bit odd kitted out in running gear for a walk.
I managed the run with no problems and am really pleased that I'm much less breathless during and after. I think I've worked out a breathing pattern...for now. What will happen as I (hopefully) get faster I don't know.
Looking forward to Friday and W4R1...did I really say that?!
