Many thanks for all the support when I didn't quite make the 25 min run in wk 6. It makes a difference. And today with sunshine, a light breeze, the planets in their right places and a few newts tails and bats wings bubbling away on the stove, I did it. Even had a bit more fuel in the tank (metaphorically speaking) - paced up for the last minute and then ran an extra minute to make up for last week... that'll teach it! For the first time I took two days rest (3 runs a week never quite went into 7 anyway!) and I really think it helped in this case. At the end of the run I knew for certain that I am going to be able to do the 30 mins - it might take a few extra runs/days/weeks and there may be more ups and downs but I know now that I am capable. So thanks again. And I'm now officially a 'runner' and high fived and jumped up and down much to the amusement of passersby - but who cares they can share in my personal triumph too
