Good afternoon all,
Well it was time for what many consider to be the dreaded wk5 run 3 ...... A massive jump from 8 mins to 20.......
Now, from other posts you may have spotted that I get very enthused, from shouting woohoo at total strangers and high fiving thin air when I managed 5 mins, to crying my socks off for 8 mins etc well........ Today was totally different! Before I went out running, I had a few words with myself - trust Laura, believe in myself, I can do this etc etc..... And I was absolutely right! I did it! Fairly comfortably actually, slow but a good steady pace through out..... And when I finished, I just smiled- a big beaming smile, and I was filled with an amazing sense of accomplishment and awe that in 5 weeks I've gone from struggling with 60 secs to running 20 mins non stop!
Thank you all for your support and entertaining posts, you lot really help this process!
And..... When I got home, my very first race number came through the post! 7.5weeks to go!!!
Happy running all x
