I seem to be back On track now. I have done 2 runs of 28 min. I just can't believe it. I even started off a bit faster today and had to slow down but I didn't stop. I have found singing along to the music helps. I had forgotten this is what I do on the cross trainer and I have adapted my breathing to go along with it. I found this pace on the last run and all of a sudden I felt free. Unfortunately I am not quite ready to run at that pace yet so hence the fast start and the slowing down. I must look like a beetroot faced loon singing along ( not out loud). But I am sooooooooooo happy it's finally coming together. Thanks again for all the encouragement on here. It's kept me going. I can't believe I am going to go into wk 9 soon.
