My 9 yr old grandson came with me today to make sure I was fine running in the woods. I have not done a run yet without support from at least one member of my family. I suspect they still think I might keel over any minute. Anyway learning from Thursday's mistake of overdressing I set off more suitably dressed. I've still no idea what distance I've covered but 9yr old covered the distance so easily, back and forth and even walking while I slowly and steadily ran for the 28 minutes. I did it, that is week 8 done and only 2 extra minutes to run next week. It is only a few weeks since I struggled running for 2 minutes. I will probably grin for the whole weekend now.
