The first few minutes were awful...I really felt tired and that I might not be able to do it. Luckily, witiin a few minutes I got going. Up the 'slope' I went, frightened a man on his drive, I think he thought there was a steam train coming! I'd turned the volume down on my mp3 player and now know that I must have been waking all the sleeping householders as I ran past! Did my usual run up and down the lane then I went along a couple of fields. I was so pleased when Laura said '5 minutes to go'. Hooray, this was ok. AND I'm on the way to changing my route. I'm going to try and stick to roads so I can measure my distance.
W7 here I come!
