wow just stunned myself and ran for 20 minutes without stopping. Laura was right it is a mental game and you do need faith in your body. After the first 5 minutes the pain in my calfs had subsided and i was just plodding along in my own world.The kids were alongside me on their bikes babbling on but i didnt hear them and it was great.I did get a stitch but i was able to work through it with breathing exercises. It has been the hardest week for me so far but i am pleased as 6 weeks or so(i had a few wobbles) I couldnt run for 60 seconds without going blue! my speed is slow but I takecomfort that I completed the 20 minutes so i will take that for now and work on the speed another time.Roll on week 6
