Inclines are hard ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

WK4R1 completed this morning and I never thought I'd say this but I actually ran for 16 minutes today!! 16 actual minutes!! Wow ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

As a little gift to myself for getting to WK4, I thought I'd try an incline in the last 5 minute run and boy, was that hard!! Rewarding but really hard ๐Ÿ˜“

And the best part today-Mr Smooth saying to me "that's fantastic" Why thank you Michael, it's nice be appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, I tried an incline yesterday and very nearly regretted it! Once I got my breath back though, I felt pretty pleased with myself. Well done :-)

Well done, Kim. Those 16 actual minutes come from a special c25k place, not from where ordinary minutes come from.

Most people reward themselves with cake, but not you Ms True-Grit. No, you run up a hill!
