New mantra - 'elapsed time is all that matters'

Graduate running (I am 2 weeks post-grad) feels a bit like sixth form or college - no 40-minute bells; no uniform, no one to care whether you turn up for w3r3 or whatever...

Anyway the mind journey goes on - I did manage a wheezy 30 mins-ish this morning and the message from Mount Gallumphus was:

'Time elapsus is all that matters - not speedimus or fariness.'

Anyway it was a struggle but I did stay out for 40mins per C25k training, 5 mins warm up and cool down, embracing 30 mins puffing around!!

Great post... a bit like one I tagged with.. No style, flair or speed:)

Well done you...runs for pure pleasure, runs to consolidate the 30 minute runs..shorter, different route runs... all helping to build up those running legs!
