Well I went out with Sammy this morning and did the 3 x 10 minute runs. The first two were OK-ish, not easy. The third I had to slow down to walking a couple of times because my knee was crying out but I did the last ten minutes without stopping. Had to keep telling myself I can do this. I have run non-stop for 30 minutes more than once.
The sun wasn't out and I forgot to take a picture - well it was a bit cloudy - but I feel absolutely great.
I think Sammy's one minute respite walks are shorter than Laura's though and the final ten minutes were very quiet. I think that was so I could concentrate on listening to my own huffing and puffing
I don't think I am 10k material but it was good to work towards something different.
