Today I have accomplished two goals....1) running 20 minutes 2) running outside.
My 18 year old son came home for Easter yesterday and I told him about my 20 minute run coming up. "Well Mum why don't I run with you outside"? Firstly I was a bit nervous as all my running up until now had been on my treadmill and secondly my son is a lot fitter than me (he completed his Army basic training last year). As I don't get to see my son as much now I thought it would be nice to spend some time together. So of we went and bless him he kept to my pace only running ahead to open gates so I didn't have to stop! It's fair to say the time went by a lot quicker than on the treadmill and I managed to find a good pace. Breathing took a while to control and other than the last 3 minutes (up hill) I thought it went quite well!
Week 6 here I come!
