Finally got back up to 30 mins non-stop running (yay!) but clocked an excruciatingly slow 2.06 miles (3.34km approx.). On my walk home I started to think about why I was doing this:
Mood management - yep, that still works
weight loss / toning up - yep, doing the job
love the post run rush - yep, again
feeling of achievement - and again with the 'yep'...
So, no, not where I wanted to be (I knew it was to good to be true, swanning through the original challenge) at this point post graduation, but I can run 30 minutes non - stop, still getting out of it what I wanted and the speed will come.
Have a nice day, peeps.
