I just ran for 43 minutes!!!! Thanks CathCakes!!

I took CathCakes advice and upped my game today, I thought "well I'll just take a slightly longer route and see how I go" and when i looked at my phone I'd only done 24 minutes, gutted :( I was knackered.

Decided to keep going up a steady, long busy road (If there are cars I won't walk cos I'll feel silly) I took it slowly....very slowly, my lungs burned and my legs felt like they were shuffling along!!! but I was determined...my god that road went on for ever! When I got to the end of it I have to confess I walked up the incredibly steep hill and ran down the other side to home. Looked at my phone and it said 43 bloomin minutes :) I couldn't stop smiling :)

So it just goes to show you, if you push yourself who knows?? Thanks CathCakes :)
