First of all - THANK YOU, THANK YOU AND ONCE AGAIN I THANK YOU - all you lovely people on this forum for your encouragement. I decided to stick with Sami and set off this morning and it was brilliant. Quick 5 minute walk then 3 x 18 minutes with a one minute rest in between and I only went and did it.
Total distance was 9.54k in 66 mins but why Me 3
1) I did it - so chuffed kept running for each of the 18 minute slots without stopping
2) I ran up every hill without stopping - even the final one and
3) Garmin PB longest run 9.5k
So extremely happy and a great start to the day
Happy Running all - it's lovely out there at the moment
