Carried on with my new "hilly" route. I thought eight minutes would be tough! A big jump from five minutes but.. I SMASHED it!!
When Laura said you're half way I thought well that's not too bad - how far will another four minutes take me? Then the recovery walk, start running again ok. The next thing Laura's saying well done and slow down for the warm down walk. To be honest I wasn't ready to slow down there was more left in the tank.
Hubby confessed last night that he now has to pedal to keep up with me, apparently he was just sitting on the bike scooting along with me!! I didn't realise I was going faster? I feel comfortable with the speed I'm going.
I know my recovery has really improved and I can talk to him while I'm running.
I mentioned to someone at work that I'd started running, he's really impressed when I told him I'd just run two eight minutes with five minutes rest. He was shocked when I told him the next run was a full twenty minutes, but encouraged me to do my best.
Can't wait for tomorrow's run 20 minutes!!
