Woke up this morning thinking I had to do W5R3 but in fact it was W5R2 so 8 mins x 2 and not 20mins which was a relief since the weather outside was blowing a gale and pouring with rain. Yesterday I was wondering how on earth I was going to move onto 20 mins when I had only run 5 previously so when I realised it was 8mins I thought to myself thats good its only 8 mins! Looks like reverse psychology works for me!
So off I went out into the worst weather we have had in ages. The first 8 minute went well as I really needed to warm up (it was freezing) plus I had the wind (gales!!) behind me but unfortunatley for the return 8 minute run the wind (gales!) was blowing directly at me. From an observers point of view I must have looked hilarious trying to run against a force 9 gale, legs moving but not actually getting anywhere!!! Poor Laura was doing her best to keep me motivated and bless her she managed to get me to the end. Despite all this I actually enjoyed myself and although I am still worried about the 20 minute run to come in a couple of days I will be putting my trust in Laura and if the weather is horrible I really dont care.
