So I managed it. It is bizarre though - week 8 day 1 and 2 were _really_ tough, run 3 was a breeze. Today, nowhere near as bad as w8d1 or w8d2 but not as smooth as w8d3.
I am also _really_ aching in my lower legs/above my ankle - far more than an extra two minutes would suggest. I ran (including the walks) 4.9km, a tiny bit further than w8d3 so my pace was slightly slower if anything.
The only difference is that w8r3 (the great one) was done in the evening, all the other runs are around 3-4pm.
Oh, and I used my funky shiny new 5.99 running top from Aldi. I am usually an Aldi snob (yeah, I admit it), but it was great! It was quite breezy today and I thought I would be really cold, but no, warmer than my normal t-shirt if anything.
Anyway, I did it - I ran 30 minutes non-stop. Yeah :-).
