Yay!!!! I did it!!!!!!!

I am absolutely beside myself because I finished the c25k tonight with a run of 5k in length. Yes it took me 45 minutes but I decided that I would give it a go! I am not going to lie it was really hard in places and my pace dropped to almost a walk but I still kept on going. I started the c25k as I was not going to be able to swim for four weeks after having my eyes lasered. I started around the middle of May. I lost a week due to eye recovery and almost another week due to work commitments but yes today I did it!!!!

I am so pleased.
