Just keep the same pace that you have been doing. Maybe even slow it down a bit as you have the extra 4 minutes.

But just relax, enjoy your music and you will breeze through it.

Yes I will I thought that I would slow it down a little as I don’t want to run out off steam 😁

Well done.

You have recognised that you ran for 16 minutes, but between warm up and cool down you were constantly moving for 21 minutes, so actually for longer than the next run.

You might think you are going to complete the next run..........I know you are going to complete the next run..........so believe it.

Slow, steady, triumphant.

I am dressed, stretched, and ready to go do W5R2. The 8 min. is in my head but I want to do it without stopping at all to walk. I'll be back to report by progress pretty soon! I can do this!
