Wk9 R1 and a little bit extra

Mental block... what mental block?

It's amazing to think that 8 weeks ago I was daunted by the thought of running for 60 seconds but today, after running for 30 minutes I looked at my distance, saw I was at 4.6km and said (yes, said, out loud using normal breathing) "It's only 3 more minutes."

So I did it, I ran for a total of 33 minutes 23 seconds and ran 5km.

I then ate a banana, drank some water and did a 15 minute yoga post-run cool down. #smugface

I totally expect the rest of the day to be chaos but this hour has been fantastic :)

Two runs left :)
