I feel like I'm actually running now. Downloaded map my run and was surprised to see I cover 4.8 km( including my 5 minutes walking either end). Currently my half way mark is at the top of a steep hill and I turnaround and think 'phew! I don't have to run back up there'. But if I'm going to hit 5k running that killer hill is gonna be in there. It's not alone, there's lots of hills on my route and I am finally finding them easier.
I vastly underestimated my route I thought it was 3 km maybe! Let's hope I make it to week 8 by next week!
