Well, I went out on Monday with my friend - first time I've ever run with someone else (AND she is a real runner!) and easily covered 25 mins having not satisfactorily made it to 20 the week before. I was pretty pleased and amazed! So yesterday I went back to the podcast onto week 7 to do the same and found I was really struggling after 20 mins. Annoyingly I'd changed my route and found myself staring at a 45 degree incline for the last 5 mins, (which didn't help!) plus I had had to open and close several gates on this route. Think it broke my stride.
Anyway, I shall try it again tomorrow. I cannot believe that I have got this far. I may only be lightly jogging (only covered 2.2 miles yesterday) but if you'd told me I'd be running that non-stop a few weeks back I'd have never believed it!
