Well not only was I more than a little bit surprised to manage 8 minutes of continual running, but totally gobsmacked when Laura told me to do it again. I actaually shouted WHAT? out loud. ( Am I the only one who answers Laura when she talks to me......." go for it" "ok" "you're doing fine" "thanks" ) anyway I did as I was told ...and managed two 8 min runs. Hurray. Bring on run 3!
