Couch to 5K - Patricia racing ahead

Pat is a week ahead of me in this running programme, which means she just did day two of week 4.
On day 1 of week 1, just a few short weeks ago, she couldn't run for a minute continuously.
Today she ran 3 minutes, then 5 minutes, then 5 minutes, then 3 minutes, all quite comfortably.
In total 16 minutes in total, interspersed with minutes of walking.

Meanwhile yesterday I had my first problem with asthma, I think because the weather was noticeably colder, so on my second bout of running I was wheezing enough to need to slow down to a walk and use my Ventolin inhaler. After that I was fine and completed the session with no further problems.
