W5R3 omg I did it!!

Really hadn't been sure about the step up to 20 mins but, as you fellow bloggers keep reminding me, the programme hasn't let me down yet. And you were right. I thought the 10 to 15 minute bit was really hard going but started to enjoy (well almost!) the last 5 mins. I did cheat a bit by changing my route to avoid the second 10 mins being entirely uphill. The downside of that was I had to do a 15 min cool down walk to get home. To make up for the long walk home, I bought a Toffee Crisp bar on the way back with a pound I found in my pocket and savoured every morsel.
