W5R5.......it was tough but I did it!

Well I never, little me ran for 20 mins solid!!! Was so pleased when Laura said I'd done 10 mins as that was more than i did in one go in R2 and from then onwards it was much more pschological than physical - just kept putting one foot in front of the other and before i knew it it was all over! Unbelievable!! Felt really tired afterwards but recovered pretty quickly.I think its so important to have a decent route and to vary the route as it definitely helps to pass the time!
