Finally got the pace sorted today! Breathing was so much easier at the end and today I carried on running past the last 5 minutes to see how much further I could go. Made it to 8 minutes without too much trouble!!! Couldn't believe it. I also covered 4.7k including the warm up and cool down, so I covered the most distance by running at a much more even pace. Left leg is playing up again so may need to think about 2 days rest which I don't want to do but if needs be better to play it safe before starting Week 3. Hope it's just another niggle and have been stretching like mad since I got back.
Anyway I'm thrilled with this morning and looking forward to a good day in a great mood
Happy running everyone.
