How the hell did that happen?

Today I went out for only the third time in two months. Those of you who read my previous blog will know the reasons why.

I had Laura talking me through W5R2, but after the first 8 minutes I decided to carry on and see if I could do W5R3, the dreaded 20 minutes. So in a slightly schizophrenic manner, I had Laura and her music playing at the same time as the rather disturbing disembodied voice of Runkeeper was informing me of my pace and distance every 5 minutes.

Guess what. I did it. I ran for 20 minutes without stopping. It was slow (only covered 1.55 miles) but I don't care. I did it and I'm still alive!!
