I did it . i wasn't quite sure I could do it and I usually leave my third run until Saturday morning but I wanted to get it in the bag ( and also give myself a second chance to complete it on Sunday). I went out tonight having had Laura freeze on me twice before I left the house. I did my walk and started running much closer to home than I usually do. I got to the 5 minute mark and thought "I can actually do this " then when I reached the point where my first 8 minute run finished on Wednesday my phone went silent. Nothing. I carried on for what I thought was another minute and still nothing. I had to stop running for about 30 seconds to rest the app then started running again. I decided to run for 1 song and then class this as the 10 minute mark. Laura didn't desert me again after that. I finished and felt great, wobbly but great. Only when I got home and looked at my garmin did I realise that I had run for 23 minutes with only a 30 second break in the middle. So although I didn't quite do the 20 minutes without stopping I think I will treat this as a victory and move on to week 6. There's no stopping me now. I might celebrate with some new running socks
