My achievement this morning will probably not seem like an achievement by anyone else's standards, but I'm sure there are people out there like me who struggle to run for 30 mins. I haven't run for 30 mins non stop for quite a few weeks now (I graduated at the end of August) but I have read lots of posts on here that say if you slow it down you can run for longer. Now, I'm not fast - my usual pace is 8:35 per km- but today I slowed it right down to 9:06 per km and I managed to run for 31 mins comfortably; my breathing was steady, my legs were aching nicely (if you know what I mean!) and I ran naked - nothing to distract me! It was glorious! The sun was shining and I also changed my route a little. All in all, these minor changes made me feel that I can continue running and one day, I will be able to run a 5K non stop. I'm getting there ... slow and steady.
