The run today was like those before Christmas: cold, wet and windy and was a bit of a shock after the gentler weather of late. But it was nice to have the rain cool me down along the way. 28 minutes is a long time to run and I focus on getting to the halfway point as after then, though panting like a steam train, I refuse to stop until the end albeit my pace gets slower and slower. In four runs time there is no way that I will be even close to doing 5k in 30 minutes. But that's ok as I can work on speed once I graduate. So fingers crossed I am looking at 21 Jan as my graduation run.
