Well that was a week! Three different runs and was dreading the last, It went very well, I even enjoyed it!. The 20 mins was much better than expected - I did go slowly and ran a flat route. So very proud of myself and the support I have got from family and friends has made it easier.
And to make it more rewarding, one of my male colleagues at work noticed my weight loss - I never thought anyone looked at me! And tonight my niece said I was looking great! So all in all, going very well!
To others out there that think its not possible, IT IS. If you had told me 6 weeks ago I would jog for 20 mins without stopping, I would have told you to dream on. I have done it, enjoyed it and feel more energetic than I have for years. I opt to take the stairs, walk rather than catch the bus, and generally happy to make healthy eating choices as I know it will help with the running if I am lighter! And I loved buying a smaller pair of jeans this week...
So all I can say, is GO FOR IT!
