Yes ... and no. I did the first eight minute run and it was hard! But I did it so I felt great. Then the five minute walk and I started the second eight minute run. I got about five minutes in and could feel myself slowing down, which normally I don't worry about because I'm going for endurance, not speed. But at that point I almost felt like I'd trip over my own feet and I just didn't have it in me. So I walked the next two minutes and ran the last minute before cool down started.
I am a bit frustrated because I didn't want to quit. But I know even seasoned runners have off days so I am not giving up. I will repeat today's training on Friday instead of trying to run 20 minutes straight. Probably Monday and Wednesday next week as well and try for 20 next Friday I think.
That's it for now, I just wanted to let you know how this morning's run went. Happy Hump Day everyone.
