It got dark quickly I got spooked so wasn't going to stop running was I!

Hehe one way to make me run. It was so hot I didn't go until after 9 pm. I went a route I use regularly and it is mostly open paths but there is a part that is quite wooded. Just as I got to the wooded part a man came round the corner and he was in dark clothing and made me jump, I had just started the second 8 minute run. Last time I did this run I didn't make it but this time I shot through, must have been the adrenalin that kept me going. Got to face that 20 minute run again now.

    Well done ! You probably made him jump too.

    Good luck with the 20 mins.

  • Well done to you, I would have been spooked too, im sure you will be fine doing the 20 min run, Laura helps you get through it. :) :) it is tough but look what we have achieved so far

  • Well done! Onwards and upwards! Good luck with R3 :)

  • That would have frightened the life out of me! The 20 minutes is less bad than it sounds - go for it!

  • Will do guys, felt quite good about last nights run. strong and reasonable pace, probably fear induced but i now feel positive i can do.

    will keep you posted. Have a good day x

  • That spooking sounds safer than my plan of a rabid dog chasing be to increase my speed ;)

    Well done you
