Sounds like a good run!

Speed is not terribly important, but if you do want to work on increasing it, then a good way is to use one run a week for intervals, or fartlek runs - it's amazing what pushing your heart rate up for short periods will do for both speed and stamina. But take it gently - many small increments are always better than one big one.

Keep it up!

Will try being Laura less thurs. This run keeper thing on my phone says when you pass each 5 mins I think. Do you have a 5k planned Dawn? X
