It seems that for the last few weeks I've been counting minutes which feel like hours between running 20 minutes (week 5) to 25 minutes (week 6 and 7) to 28 minutes and I've been wondering why those additional 3 minutes felt so much longer than any other three minutes (boil-an-egg minutes, clean-my-teeth minutes, 100m-freestyle minutes, one-track-on-my-ipod minutes, all those are no-time-at-all-minutes!) Now I tell myself I've only got to do 2 additional minutes during week 9 to reach the magic 30. I've had to slow my speed from 8.5kph to 7.5 to be sure of reaching 28 minutes but I think I should be OK keeping to that speed for next week and then I'll work on speeding up gradually. Only 3 more runs- amazing
