The Boy who went out a Man and came back a RUNNER :)

Well it's totally official Laura told me tonight I am a runner :) I smashed Wk6R3 and even managed to complete 5k in 42 minutes as well.

Chuffed is not the word. I'm over the moon. My gps watch was going mad strava was recording it all as well.

I bet I could have carried on as well but as my motto. Little and often keeps the injuries at bay.

My tomtom cardio runner even gave me a smiley face for recovery time too.

I am totally bitten now just wish I had a running partner to celebrate with.

So onwards and upwards week 7 starts Saturday. The tiger is well and truly loose. .................. ;)
