Week 5 Day 2

Slowed down. Did it. More to the point enjoyed it!! Dare I say this but we both said we enjoyed the 2 x 8 mins more than the 3 x 5 mins on Sunday.

So chuffed. I 'think' we may be ok on Friday with the 20 minutes hurdle.

Calves hurt a bit but I had to run on concrete in my wellies yesterday when of my Labradors yesterday went walkabout...little sod. All good apart from that.

The slowing down definitely worked as I knew it would. Thanks all for making me :))

Only gone and got past the half way point...YESSSSSS !!!!!
