Week 8 run 1

Well folks, this is run 1 of week 8, now today this was a challenge.

I wanted to give up after 5 mins today, I just found it hard to stay motivated but because I am so bloody minded I continued gruelling minute after minute.

All the time my brain and body were telling me to quit and go home. I stayed the course and completed 5k in 28 mins again, I think this is a comfortable time for me at the moment. Perhaps in a few weeks I may try to increase my pace and complete 5k in less than 28 mins but for now Ian happy with that pace and time.

My next big hurdle once I graduate after week 9 is to increase my distance from 5k to 10k. I know this will be a challenge, but I look forward to the day when I can tell everyone that I've reached that goal.

I wish everyone success in reaching their goals and hope to hear from anyone who has reached their goals.
