Yipee! It took me 5 runs in total because in the first 2 I only ran 5 and then 6 out of the 8 minutes but I've done it and completed the full 3rd run this morning. Phew. I think I need to build up slowly and if I don't manage the week's 3 runs properly to just keep plugging at it until I do. I really, really want to get to do the Park Run early next year and with a bit of willpower I should do it. It's amazing how I have willpower in other areas of my life but sometimes the running 'wall' seems a bit too high to climb over........ Just need to apply myself to this now and crack on. Thanks for your support. Reading other's posts is a great motivator!
