I did it!

Yay......I finally completed week 9 run 3 on Saturday morning, although my last run was

3 minutes slower than run 2 which took me 38.39 minutes to do 5k.

I have been training for 2 days a week with a group and have noticed that I run faster

with them than I do when I am on my own.

I am amazed that I have got this far because I struggled to even run for 1 minute then and

could not imagine running for this long!
