Well after taking the time off to get over my cold, I went for it . Set off thought I'd take it nice and slow, and soon was in a really good rhythm. Happy I kept on running. Got half way felt amazing, just keep going. BUT, got to 28 minutes and I nearly stopped, I kept going but it felt like never before even worse than at the end of week 1 run1. But I was NOT going to stop, kept going and when she said I'd finished I could have cried. Next run will be better, I hope.

Really shouldn't be so tuff on myself, I have been ill after all. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜·πŸ˜¬πŸƒπŸ‘ƒ

Well done you for keeping going. After a bad cold I always ease myself back in - but you went for it and completed. It will be easier next time!

Far too stubborn to give in that's my problem.

Well done for getting out there, at least you'll know next 2 times (the last 2 times!!) that you can definitely do the 30 minutes :)

Colds can really knock your respiration for six, just take care and if 28 minutes felt good then give yourself a pat on the back as that is amazing in itself!
