My beginner wasn't at the club tonight, so there was nothing for it but to run with the quicker peeps - ok some of them have never run for more than 25 minutes, but they are slimmer, younger and quicker than me.
Off we went round the block - 2½ miles in 35 minutes - including warm up and warm down. In the middle we did 1½ miles in 19 minutes, at a pretty steady pace - so that's about 12:40 minute miling - it felt like work to me, but I kept going - HR up at a steady 156 too! I was pretty pleased with that, considering how little running I have managed recently.
Off away for a couple of days now (it is half term, but it's not away on holiday), but will take my kit.
