Week 5, run 3 - 20 minutes done!!!

Slideman profile image

Well I won't pretend I didn't feel like stopping several times - but I didn't give in to the temptation, and I completed the full 20 minute run.

I even upped my pace for the last minute or so.

Sadly I just crept over the 6 minutes per kilometre mark by 5 seconds, which is really frustrating!

But 3.29 kilometres in 20 minutes is encouraging, I think. Plenty of time to improve on pace.

Well done on that first long run for me that one was the biggest of the mental challenges!! Keep up the good work and you will soon have your green badge!

Ha ha - had to delete my precious comment because I wrote something embarrassingly stupid :P What I originally said was:

Well done - we knew you could do it :) The pace will come later. [All good so far]

Then I wrote: Never mind about the 6km/hr barrier - you will break through that next time.

6km/hr??? :D :D :D What I meant to say was 6 mins/km. I'm going to go for a coffee now. I think I need one.

all the best with your next run!

Sometimes it feels like I'm only running 6km/hr!

Thanks for making me laugh though!
