I headed out today quite looking forward to this one but thinking ooh it's a big step from 5 minutes to 8 but I managed it and I really can't believe I ran 8 minutes twice!!!
About five weeks ago I was really struggling to run 1 minute so I am over the moon with completing 8 minutes non stop! Mind you, every slight incline felt like a mountain and that's when I thought the cycle path was flat.. I could really feel it but then running back down felt lovely.
I need to find another route as by 6pm it was starting to come in dark and I don't really fancy running along a cycle path with open fields one side and an unlit country road the other next week when the clocks turn back an hour.
Anyway.. on to the third run of week 5 in a couple of days and IF I complete that I will be surprised! and pleased lol.
