I ran for 20 mins. Me. It was soooo weird - my legs and arms were just like a machine and when i felt heavy i just wiggled my hips more.

Played a kind of weird jogging game focussing on different things in turn...strong legs strong legs strong legs strong legs, then strong arms...then breathing, then relaxing shoulders - I couldn't stop when 20 mins came had to slow down gently and then...

Legs of lead lol

But i did it :D

  • Well done! Bask in the glory - you deserve it and spare a moment to look back at quite how far you have come. Congrats!

  • Well done! I know that heavy leg feeling -strangely enough it hurts more to walk than to run after a while :)

  • Oh fab fab fab Melly, you have now made me really start looking forward to r3 on Thursday, and now I have some great mantras and an awesome hip wiggling tip to keep me going!!!! Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜˜

  • Well done, Melly.

    I think we all get that heavy leg thing when slowing to a walk after a longer run but it passes soon enough.

  • Great job, its a wonderful feeling that you have made such significant progress. Even the heavy legs feel good in a weird sort of way.

  • Well done Melly, that's a big milestone achieved.
