The good news is that I ran for the full 30 minutes. It was a real struggle though - i hated every minute and was red in the face, perspiring and heavy breathing by the end (to be fair it was a bit warmer than when I usually run). In the 30 minutes, I only covered 3.85K and to be quite honest I couldn't have gone any faster or any further so I think the chances of ever running 5K are pretty slim. Still, I'm determined to complete the last 2 runs so that I don't let Laura or myself down. I'm thrilled to have got this far - would never have believed it possible, just wish I had the willpower to push on to 5K.
