I'm up for my 20 mins tomorrow, seams like such a massive jump, got to think about pace & concentrate more. I did 2x8mins OK , it was hard in the last 4 mins but its slight up hill for me at that time , I'll do a different route so at 15 mins I'm on the flat & see if that helps. How often do you get...

Re: Running shorts + progress

Nice one, I'm glad you are doing well. On week 4 & worrying about longer runs now but I'm sure I'll make it!
