After a week of no running, as I was on holiday and didn't fancy running on the twisty, narrow Cornish road with those high stone walls each side, I went out this morning determined to do the last 30 min run in the programme. Got into a rhythm, ran up all the hills (slowly 😃) and kept going until Laura said "that's it."
So pleased - didn't get to 5k in 30 mins (it was 4.2k) but I kept going that's the important thing. Not sure I would have done it without reading all the good advice on this forum that it's ok to slow down - at 60 this was so important for me. Thanks Oldfloss and everyone!
