Week 8 run 2 tonight. I was dreading it after a horrible run on Sunday in the wind and rain. 28 mins long - it was the last thing I wanted to do after a hard day at work - but my boyfriend persuaded me to get out there. It was tough and my shoelace came undone midway but I kept going for 28 minutes AND carried on for another 2 mins!!!! (Thank you Tiddlywink for the suggestion!). So I have already reached the target of 30 mins!!!! Thanks to everyone for all their fantastic support and advice. Now I know I can do it! Only 4 more runs to go until I graduate!! Bring it on!
