Week 5 run 2 completed! Yippee!
It was hard work - the legs were really feeling it. But considering a month ago I needed resuscitating after 60 seconds I think I've come a long way.
I went out this morning feeling pretty positive - I knew that I could do it. When things were getting a bit harder physically I used the road signs and lamp posts as mini goals. Laura's 4 minutes and 7 minutes done seemed a long time coming. The run back was made harder by a cold headwind and slight incline so these little goals helped.
I so pleased that I can run 8 minutes but the dreaded 20 minute run is taking a bit of the shine off. It seems such a big jump from 8 to 20!!! I know it will be a mental challenge but the physical side of it (legs & lungs) will also be a significant challenge.
Wish me luck
