I was really nervous about the 20 minute run last night - how could I go from 8 minute runs to 20 minutes? My husband and daughter came with me and walked around the lake with me as we started off. It felt strange leaving them behind. I'd managed to do a complete lap of the lake during run 2 and had decided that if I could do one lap them I must be able to do two (4 laps = 5k) A lady with a dog told me 'well done' as I passed her coming the other way for the 3rd time and this really boosted me to carry on. My husband and daughter had worked out where they thought I would finish my 20 minutes and were waiting for me like a cheering party. I ran past them for a minute or so and they then had to run to catch me up. Very proud and pleased and so far not too achey.....
