I'm still in a little bit of shock! I did week 9 run 3 and I'm so happy that I managed to break the 5km target on the last 30min run...was that really me?!!! Looking back to my first post when I struggled so much makes me truly realise how much can be achieved...I wouldn't have been able to do it with out all the advice and encouragement from all you amazing forum members though that's for sure!
Anyway, here's some things I learnt along the way....
1. I like wiggly routes where I can't be overwhelmed by what's ahead of me, I like being able to set little targets of reaching the next corner/bend.
2. Always look the way that you're running...yep, I did learn this one the hard way
3. Wind is not my friend!!!
4. Don't get upset by people making fun or laughing at you...they get to go home and live with the mean person they are and I get to go home feeling like I've achieved something wonderful.
5. Believe you can do it...everybody can achieve more than they think possible, trust me!!
Thanks everyone, here's to many more runs to come x
