Back in the day I used to be pretty quick down the 100m, that day was about 25 years ago now though! Seven years after pregnancy I have decided I can no longer use that as an excuse for the excess of weight so last night I took my first step on the way to 5k. It seems like an enormous challenge. I have always feared distances longer than 100m and am asthmatic to boot. As I went through the door I had my husband telling me not to go too far in case I got into trouble (breathing). So, I set out, did some walking and some jogging a bit more walking and some heavy breathing I guess I was out for about 25 minutes in total and found that my village has a really big hill - I'm gonna run all the way up that one day! Am a bit stiff today but feeling so chuffed with myself. Trouble is, the fear is still there.
