Badum bum! Week 5 done!

I've not posted for aaages as I ended up only doing one run a week thanks to work and kid pressures then got stuck on week 5 run 1 for like, ever. This week I powered on through run 2 in the blistering sun but today I conquered the 20 minute monster! Thank God it rained so I was cool (there's something marvellous about running in the rain) and I can happily say that I totally nailed it! I could've kept going even! Not bad for a very overtired, very overweight 38 year old mother of two tiny ankle biters. I may have looked like a tomato but I felt like a queen. Bring on week 6!!!!

Fantastic! I hate running in the heat and always get very red faced. I used to worry about it but now I don't give a toss. Wear it with pride.
