Well I'd read here that lots of people struggle with this run so I decided to do it a bit different - got a new route. Took the car to a park with a track that's about 4km around a reservoir. Think I was going a bit faster, there were slight inclines and a wee hill, a bit different from my normal completely flat route. Really enjoyed the run. Laura told me when I'd reached 12.5 minutes and I was feeling fine, I ran and ran and ran, thinking to my self, "Laura has not said there are 5 minutes left, she must be going to surprise me by saying there are only two minutes!" I was almost round to the start and was feeling pretty exhauted, then Laura's voice said "5 minutes to go". What? I thought I was near the end! So I gritted my teeth and got on with it. My asthmatic breathing was going a bit wonky with a kind of whooping breathing but I made it to the end! woo hoo!
Got my annual asthma check coming up so will hopefully get some advice from the nurse. But saying that, my breathing is 100 times better than week one when I struggled through one minute.
I've done it twice now, so i can run for 25 minutes woo hoo!
