So the tortoise was right. I found today (friend still cheerfully jogging behind on W1R2) that I could run even slower than a snail and that revelation saw me through the hard last five minute run.
It's extraordinary how, when you have a three minute run at this stage, you think "Thank God," whereas just a couple of weeks ago, I thought "I can't possibly do three minutes!"
Old school music choices helped too: "Half way to Paradise", "Run around Sue" etc...
I am half way to Paradise: Week 5 on Sunday. Bring it on....😳
