    I completed Week 5 yesterday with the big 20 minute run! I ran at a fairly slow pace so that I could sustain the full 20 minutes without stopping. The first mile was on the track and took me 12 minutes, then I headed off the track and ran through the surrounding neighborhood for a change of scenery to get through the final 8 minutes. The last 5 minutes were tough but I hung in, and just am amazed that just over 5 weeks ago, I was fretting over minute and 1/2 intervals! On to Week 6 and only 4 weeks to go!
