Having failed to complete the run last Wednesday and with an extra day's rest the pressure I put myself under not to fail again was pretty awful. But I shouldn't have worried, I did it.
Despite finding the banality of the song lyrics particularly annoying, by the time I'd got to the final 5 minute run I just knew that today was a good running day for me. That extra day's rest did the trick and I even carried on for a short way after Laura said stop as if to prove to myself that it wasn't luck, I did it with some left in the tank.
I'll tell you what though, I feel bloody fantastic, more than is justifiable really but I don't care, it's a personal victory.
