Didn’t even peek to see what I was letting myself in for today. Not my usual time but should’ve run yesterday and couldn’t. Imagine my face when Jo said 28 minutes! My runs always have a hill (or 2) and I seriously thought I was in trouble after 5 minutes but I just kept listening to my tunes - thankfully they were quite upbeat or something I hadn’t heard for years. Clenched my teeth and just kept at it. I was waiting for her usual 60 second countdown but was soooo thankful that she didn’t give me one 😂. I’m going to go back to my usual morning time - hopefully it’ll be a little easier or should I say bearable?

Good stuff - just 5 runs left until graduation 😀😀 Keep going!
But does anyone else find it really hard? I was wondering if I’m getting a bit bored with the runs? I have been away and really enjoyed the runs I did even though I found them hard.
Great job all things considered... you know what to expect next time 😂
Well done - you've done 25 minutes four times and 28 minutes once - you're very close to being ready for the target of 30 minutes.
Thanks ArthurJG - when you put it like that it sounds a whole lot more achievable 👍
Someone said to me that the challenge in the last two weeks is the cumulative effect of the runs, especially if you do them every second day. Three runs a week of course gives you a two day break once a week which is probably a big help at this stage, but don't be scared to sneak in an extra rest day if you think it would make a difference.
I just did this run too and found it much harder than I expected. Suffered cramp and was soooo hot. Hopefully it will be better for both of us next time !!!
