So this morning I set out with my own playlist and RunKeeper. I haven't figured out a way to tell RunKeeper that the first 5 minutes and the last 5 minutes are meant to be walking and the middle 30 mins are the run, so it insists on giving me split times for each kilometer and the first and last are quite slow. Still, it was nice not having Laura telling me that I might be getting tired. The main thing I miss about not having Laura, though, is the 1 minute warning at the end of the run. I guessed it by looking at my watch when I'd had the 30 minute marker (which was 25 minutes into the run, of course) and then looking for when I'd run another 4 minutes. I always like to run faster for the last minute and really squeeze out every last drop of energy. I think I must have succeeded this time as I felt physically sick when I slowed down to a walk again. I think I may need to re-jig my playlist too...
