Wk3: Watch out Paula Radcliffe!

Today I completed wk3 run 1, I actually ran for 3 minutes! TWICE! I know it's not the London marathon but to me it's mt Everest and I'm so proud of myself. I can't believe how much stronger my legs feel and how it's changing my whole attitude, I actually want to get out and run. Have signed up for a 5k in September and know I'm gonna storm it (if that's not too cocky) I can't wait :)
