I went out without much hope with the usual, 'Oh my goodness' its going to be a real jump up. When half time came for the first 8 mins I was a bit surprised. I think I'd been going slow and realised it was one more length and back of the driveway, and I was hopeful. I nearly messed up during the 5 mins walk. I was convinced I'd missed Laura telling me to start running again. It seemed so long,and the music had got more upbeat. I went back to the start of the first run and ran the next 8 mins again with Laura's help. The second 8 mins wasn't great but it wasn't awful either. No real gasping for breath and beetroot face so now have to believe in Laura for the next run!
