Last Friday after completing wk7r3 I felt that I had a little more in my legs so was looking forward to wk8r1. But came down with a throat & chest infection and irritating cough making it very difficult to sleep and breath deeply. Instead of running I walked for half an hour on Sun and Tue, decided that after a good nights sleep to give a run a try. There is a short circuit I have timed that takes 5 minutes running to complete, therefore decided to keep going round this circuit so if had a breathing problem was close enough to home if the run was too much. I did say to my husband that I would only do a 10 minute run. After 5 minutes running I nearly gave up, but somehow got my second wind and carried on. OK, not the fasted of paces, and when Laura suggested increasing the pace I slowed down and the cool down brisk walk looked more like a trek through deep mud. But I did it, completed the 28 minutes.
