Week 5 number 3

20 min ! Whoa! It took me a while to get that in my mind before I set off. I was even a bit scared before the run .

The first 10 min were more tiring and I was trying to get the right pace as I saw the long journey ahead. However after the first 10 I managed to step up the pace as I felt more into it and started breaking a good sweat. The last 5 min were another story altogether and I had to slow it down a bit but glad I made it to the end.

It was in the second half of the run I began to feel the fitness coming and lighter on my feet. Now to enjoy the Christmas break before week 6..

Happy holidays all!

  • I think the post 20-minute run high was a highlight of 2016 for me. I told everyone who would listen for the whole of the rest of the day, "I ran 20 minutes without stopping! Me!"

    Well done you. Happy running.

  • Well done!

    Think of it as a Christmas present to yourself :D

  • I like the sound of that. Thanks
