I kept going over the 28 and ran for 30 mins. I can't see me getting to 5k in 30 mins cos I am only a little feller and my legs aren't long enough to run at 10kph. I had the treadmill on 9.0kph after a five min warm up and stopped running when the clock said 35! So the question is, have I graduated early? I have certainly achieved the couch to 30 mins in 8.5 weeks. I suppose the next challenge is to run 5k without stopping. At 9.0kph this will take me a little over 33 minutes. Whatever the argument I have just ran for 30 minutes without stopping. That is one hell of a feeling. Especially so because I normally do my running at 7.30am in the gym before work. Today I was mad busy and stressed. So stressed that I had been awake since 4am worrying so got up and drove an hour to be in the office for 7am. To do what I have done after a 10 hour day......well I think I might have a glass of red tonight!
