Woohoo!! My first 30 minute run!! I've well and truly packed those gremlins into a soundproof box in my head - when they start trying to tempt me I literally just switch off and ignore them. I love it!!!

I worked out where the 5K marker is on my route weeks ago (using MapMyRoute) and when Laura said "1 minute to go" I thought, "Well I'm not going to make 5K this time but it gives me something to work towards" and I just upped my pace a notch to see how close I could get. Literally as I reached the 5K marker Laura said "Slow down". So, not only did I do 30 minutes - but I also did the 5K!! Yeay!!!

I'd never have believed this!! Thank you Laura! Thank you NHS! And thank you to you guys too!! :oD
