Week 9 has begun!

Yippeeee!! Ran to pick up the car we'd left at a restaurant the night before (red wine!) which was 1.7 miles from home. I was thinking just get the car, you know, maybe I'm not ready for week 9 after the calf thing....anyway I'm approaching the car and I carry on! I can do this, all the little tips from you all wizzing round my head. "Am I in pain?" No! "Can I breathe?" Yes! So keep moving then!! 2 old fellas on bikes shouting "cmon love keep going!" :) I did it....30 minutes done. Felt great and so happy :) :) :)
