That was really hard work pushed through to the 5 minutes as thats when I normally feel in a rythym. By minute 7 I wanted to stop my body was tired and was screaming get off this thing and get back on the couch.
Anyway my very stubborn inner self did not listen and I eventually got to 28 minutes and still felt down as I hadnt felt happy the whole run. Doing my analysing after the run I decided that I should be more proud of myself for finishing a hard run than when it all seems to go well and so should any one of you that push through a run.
So I am now smiling.
Over the 40 minutes with warm up and down I completed 4k so still along way off but before next year I will get there.
