Week 5 run 3 DONE!

After getting stuck on week 5 for 4 weeks I finally attempted and completed the 20 minute run

The only reason I managed to even attempt it was because all of you guys were managing it and I figured that if you could do it I probably could as well

: )

Imanaged to decide that I couldn't do it after 2 minutes but told myself I was being pathetic and could manage at least 10, but once that was done I was over half way so I could manage at least 5 minutes more and then it was only 5 minutes to finish .... and I did it!

It was all indoors on the treadmill, most of the run was at 7.5km per hour and the last 5 minutes were at 6.5 but there is pleanty of time to get faster

roll on week 6
