Was going to do this Monday but the weather was good today. I ran on a different surface and it became boggy at the end so I didn't manage to run the 3km mini target I had set myself. 20 minutes continuous running was a big step up and I think this is the biggest step up in the whole course. That said, I think if you are comfortable at running 8 minute blocks , its not THAT big of a mental hurdle.
I ran only 2.3km in the 20 minutes but the surface was getting ridiculous! I hadn't set a pace objective but I guess I'm averaging at 2.5 km in 20 minutes anyway when I am running so this was an expected time. I didn't fancy running 5km though , I think my legs have had enough for a while.
Ran 20 minutes , walked 32 minutes
