Wow,look at me !

Just done week 9 R2 and I am buzzing. The 1st 10 - 15 minutes suck, to the point of wanting to quit and go back to bed, but today I actually found a rhythm of sorts ( dont know where thats been hiding, same place as my missing buzz the other day I think ! ) Graduation on Sunday same time as want2run2 , who I call duck lady. going to try and do a 5 k , very slow gentle 5k and finish with a bang. Can't begin to tell you how proud I am of me , can't find the words, but let's just say I am beaming ! I have had one small break today I must share, my 1 year old great grand daughter turned up at 7 15 am just as I finished my run, sucks for her but she's teething and she prompltly fell asleep in my arms, now I couldnt wake her could I , wouldn't be right, so we both had a nap, her for an hour me for 10 minutes. My grand daughter arrives at noon and shes here until after tea tomorrow night, I will have no rest then, the child doesnt stop, talking or moving !!
