I did it! I ran for 20 mins!!
Woke up at my usual early hour feeling the start of the cold that started yesterday niggling away. Muzzy headed I had my usual wake up coffee took an Ibuprofen and went back to bed! Woke up an hour later feeling fine but ravenously hungry Can't eat before running in the morning as even the smallest amount makes me feel sick so another coffee and off I trotted.
Wow! The first music sets a fast pace and other than helping me up the hill at the start of the run I had to adjust to my own pace and what a fantastic first 10 mins. Got to my halfway point and there was Laura saying 10 mins done and whoomf! those little gremlins came out to play. Remembering all those little pearls of wisdom offered up on this forum I asked myself 'Are you out of breath?' 'NO', 'Do your legs hurt?' 'NO'. Then my mind is a liar! Phew! But the gremlins hadn't quite finished with me as I skidded on an icy patch on the pavement! Grrr! Slowed the pace, still trying to shake off those gremlins. Then Laura said I'd done 15 mins! OMG!!! And there I was upping my pace KNOWING that I CAN do this Flippin' fantastic!
So yes, I CAN run for 20 mins
