Well - I am soooo chuffed. Went out for W7R2, all going fine, found a really nice running route through woody, watery, muddy, empty cross country style paths (including railway sleepers covered in chicken wire above marsh areas. Was still jogging in my usual slow joe pace when Laura said, 'you have been running 20 minutes' I knew I still had a fair way to go so just kept on plodding and ran another ten minutes! (including a final uphill bit) I didn't put many kms under my trainers - but I kept going, so pleased I managed it. I am beginning to believe I might actually be able to do 5k (in the time it would take most normal people to walk it probably but I don;t care - well much!!)
Not sure if I should carry on my 35 minute runs from now on or go back to week 7 R3. If I do 3 30 minute runs would that make me a graduate or is that cheating?
Anyway - still really pleased with myself.
PS does off road count as more mileage? (kilometerage doesn't sound right)
