Well, for those of you who read my entry yesterday might like to know I did it.

After a 9 week gap due to my difficult relationship with sanity, I got out there and ran. I was afraid that I wouldn't manage even a minute.

But, assisted by Mrs Runkeeper's 3 minute reminders, I ran for 9 minutes, walked for 3 then ran for 12. I returned to the house with a big grin on my face.

Over the last 9 weeks, due to the stress of battling my own mind, I've shed 9.5kg. I'm sure having a lot less of me to drag around helped.

Thanks for your encouragement yesterday. I really helped :-)
