Well I should be old enough to know better but no, I am still an idiot! I decided I would try a faster pace today as I aspire to be as fast as slow. So off I started and the new pace actually felt good - for a while. Laura has now completely deserted me so it was just me and Amy Winehouse for company. Funny how when you start getting out of breath you notice uphill bits that you never noticed before. I was glad for the 3 minute walk but still went a little too fast at the beginning of the second 10 minutes. I just about made it to the end but I think my face was turning a shade of purple! My time was faster (still very slow) but I shall be going back to slower than a slow thing for R3 - lesson learned.
