W7r2 today and I managed two and a half miles in 30 minutes, five of which was the warm up walk. I do seem to be speeding up, well I couldn't run much slower! It feels like maybe I will be able to run 5k before too long. I took Laura's advice on the last two runs to speed up for the last minute. It did show that I did have something in reserve. The odd thing is that at the start of each of these longer runs I have thought I will never complete it but once I get into a rhythm it is so much easier and I wonder what I was worrying about. It is so amazing that I have been able todoo this, I would have never thought it possible. Still much easier for me on the treadmill, I wonder if its partly psychological remembering the horrors of school cross country!
