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!

Fabulous ZipPea. If you can do 20 mins, you can definately do the next couple of weeks. Hope and faith and shrug off the gremlins when they ask you stop....Karen x
