I really cant thank some of you enough, the advice in my previous post of dropping my speed was just so spot on!
I approached the 1st run of week 8, a little bit apprehensive as my back has been a bit iffy, but i got a banana and a cuppa down me this morn, and off to the gym i went. After the warm up,in the 1st 5 mins, the gremlins started.....I managed to shut them up through sheer grit, and carried on running at 8.9kmh. My breathing settled the stride and form sorted it self out, and things just got easier and easier, i got to 28 mins and felt awesome, so much so, that i cranked up the treadmill to 10.5 and went for the 30 mins, i felt even more pumped and cranked up the treadmill to 12kmh for the final minute.....Only down side is that i was just short of the 5k distance on the treadmill, but my 'calibrated' jabra sport app on my phone say's 6km!
Im still buzzing, ive done 30 mins of running,and im still alive, such a great feeling, but im not going to get ahead of myself and stick to 28 min runs for the rest of the week, i have my 1st road run on friday aswell, that will be the ultimate test i think.
So moral of the story is that, keep going folks, use this community for advice, if i can do it, anyone can.
