Week 4, Run1 DONE!

Ooooh I feel lightheaded!!!! I've actually managed to run 5 minutes in a row not just once but twice. Never thought I'd see the day. I really didn't want to go out tonight but made myself do it and I'm so pleased I did. I kept it slow, I concentrated on my breathing and avoiding a stitch (must have looked funny sticking my tummy out...) but before I knew it the 5 minutes were over and I felt I could have run longer.

I'm home now, I've stretched and feel a little sore in my ankle - but elated to have got this far. Seriously can't tell you what an achievement this is!
