So, as many of you know, I have struggled to regain my week 7 continuous 25 minute runs following a five week injury break. Recently I have made it to 20 minutes or so and then flagged and ending up running/walking the last five.
My (very fit) son is staying for a few days so I asked him to run with me this morning. I told him I wanted to achieve 25 minutes. Off we went; me running (!) , him walking.
We didn't bother with music, just chatted. Towards the end at each incline he said things like, it's only a slight slope, or, we can totally do this and on we went.
26 minutes in the bag folks
Maybe now my head will re-boot
