W8R1 Who's the Daddy?!

"Who's the daddy? Who's the daddy?"

I wanted to shout as I hit 28 minutes of running! And a new PB distance!

Yes I made it despite two weeks ago thinking I'd do a second week of 25 minutes.

I really felt like going to 30 minutes but didn't as I'm a great believer in the plan. Follow the plan. It's written by the experts they know what they're doing!

At 15 minutes of running and 20 minutes of workout I really felt like giving up I didn't know how I was going to run another 18 minutes. I just thought positive thoughts and kept on running. That makes it sound easy, it wasn't. But it's definitely mind over matter!

Have a good week everyone πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
