So I did it half an hour ago I finishe my 20 min run, I been lying on the grass ever since with the dog laying across my chest I think she was just checking for a heart beat as nothing this red has ever lived! I went slow and in 5 min chunks the worse bit was the 3rd chunk and all I could think was I m over half way through I m not going to waste this and do it again. If I m honest it was hard, a challenge but ok and I ve not run that long for about xxxxxx years. I was on my warm down walk and two ladies came out of a house obviously going for a walk/jog/run who knows. I said I ve just run for 20 mins all excited and one said well Done even if it's only 20 mins. I said 60 seconds was a challenge 5 wks ago to which she replied you ll be doing a 10K next you can do a 10K in 45 mins even at a really slow jog........ Now I can probably at the moment do 5K in 45 mins so how slow am I! My excitement in managing my 20 mins was some what deflated after that conversation!
