Without Laura!

First run today listening to my own music. Am amazed I can now run for over 30 minutes. It has taken me about a year to get to this stage as I started the program when I was recovering from post viral fatigue. I knew that I would have to take it slowly so I originally aimed to do each week twice which I did have to do.I also suffered set backs along the way with no running for different reasons. However I am pretty proud that I persevered and I suppose what I am trying to say is if I can do it anyone can.

Awwww bless you and well done you :)

My goodness life seems to have thrown you some lemons, eh? Still, you know what the advice is ... Make lemonade! :D

I know I found the podcast music pretty dire when i reached the W6 runs, so used my own music too and also found I ran for longer and further just because I was happier with my own tracks. You might like to endure Laura for the last W6 run though, because I think that's the one where she tells you 'you are now a runner' :) ...such an emotional boost!

Stay proud and happy and loud about your achievements ... You have overcome heaps to get to today. Lots of luck as you head to graduation soon, I'll be watching out for your celebratory blog!

Cheers, Linda ;)
