Well after putting it off for a week and a day! my friend and i met to start the dreaded week 5, we run along the seafront and always run into the wind at the start turn halfway and head back with the wind behind us.
Tonight was no different except we had not realised how far we would travel and therefore halfway through the second five minute run we were faced with a steep hill or running around the bottom on the shingle. Up the hill we went! I could not have done it without reading the encouraging posts on this web site when others were faced with a hill, short strides, deep breaths and move arms more, just got to the top when Laura said stop(i'm sure she was waiting for us to get there!).
Turned around walked back down the hill then the last five minutes was on the flat, my legs felt like jelly but more importantly we both did it.
Looking forward to Thursday now as its only two runs albeit 8 minutes each
Thanks everyone I could not do it without you
