I heeded everyone's advice as I set off today re this run. I was not cocky but I thought to myself that it will be ok. Hmmmm. Those first 5 mins were a killer. I almost wept as I struggled to put one foot in front of the other. I was so glad of the pouring rain to cool me down.
I kept thinking I know I can do this and kept my pace really really slow and steady. I have never been so glad to hear that the 5 mins were up!!
During my 3 min walk I gave myself a good talking to and you know what the 8min run was good and the last 5 min run was (dare I say) enjoyable! In fact when there was 60 seconds left I dug deep and increased my pace (only very slightly) but it felt great!!! Look forward to the rest of week 6.
