Just had to sign up to share this little story from this evening.
After spending all day feeling apprehensive about stepping up to the big 20 minute run for W5R3 I was finally ready. I was all geared up, the bluetooth headphones were on and music was playing ready to urge me on. Jo Whiley whispered in my ear that it was time to start running and off I went.
Five minutes in Jo declared I was a quarter of the way through. Great stuff!
Then a minute or two later my headphones ran out of charge. Oh no! Ah well, I was feeling pumped so without slowing down I whipped them off and went to my backup wired pair, got the music playing again and carried on. No problem!
Then the next few minutes seemed to really drag. Jo was taking an age to let me know I was half way through. Surely it was 10 minutes by now? Then the realisation struck - I'd forgotten to restart the app as well as the music. And sure enough it was still paused on 7 minutes or so. Grrr! I set it going and kept on running.
And I carried on until Jo told me to stop.... which by my reckoning was 23-24 minutes! Wow! I was worried about doing 20 minutes but was able to go on longer. I was knackered but think I could have kept on if I'd wanted to.... I'm quite amazed!
Had to share this as I'm kind of elated... so anyone reading this about to face W5R3 - don't be afraid because you may just surprise yourself
