Well this morning was the time to prove to myself I could do 20 minutes non stop. To say I was a little apprehensive would be an understatement but out I went.
I made it to 17 minutes and then the hill (poor planning on my part to have a hill at the end of the run!) got the better of me. Felt gutted!! Had to give myself a big talking to on the warm down walk 'so what if you didn't make the 20 mintues this time YOU did do 17 minutes...17 minutes!!!!! Thats 9 minutes longer than before!!!' So am now back at home and although didn't quite make it this time I am still smiling and slightly proud of myself. Will just have to try again on the next run.
On a completely separate note I got new trainers yesterday, professionally fitter, they feel so good!
