I did it! Despite the wind, rain and an unexpected detour to avoid running through the middle of a funeral, I just ran 5km in 33 minutes 15 seconds.
I now have about the same amount of time to have a shower and make myself presentable before picking my daughter up from nursery - it seemed like such a long time when I was running it!
Thanks for all the support on the journey from you lot, I feel a little like when you leave hospital after having a baby and they just let you take it home with you and be a parent with anyone telling you what to do... Laura may have abandoned me but at least I still have you lot! I plan to try just enjoying running and seeing how I go for a couple of weeks before trying those stepping stone podcasts
