I have been in the habit of walking for 10 minutes before starting my run just to get me up the worst of a hill, but today I thought that not only would I meet the challenge of running for 30 minutes, I would also start my run after a five minute walk. After about 300 metres I thought BIG mistake as I was struggling but I somehow manage to keep going slowly. Crisis averted I plodded on only to see a lorry being manoeuvred into a driveway and traffic stopped - determined to not stop I ran into the road and around the lorry (it was safe to do so). I was able to breathe without having to think about it, my legs kept going and I managed to cover 3.34 miles in 45 minutes (ending with a 10 minute walk). I'm not going to be at a pace to complete 5k in 30 minutes but I know I am getting there. Graduation is coming close which is something I couldn't envisage after struggling with W1R1.
