Ok sorry to bore you all but had to post today. Well actually got my first sub 30 minute 5k. I didn't think it would happen today as I had a sore calf, but I thought I would run anyway. After my first time check I thought hmmm this might be the day and so it was. Ran 29.32!!! Could not believe it, I am still smiling. Never ever thought it would be possible when huffing my way through a 1 minute run all those weeks ago.

The moral of this story is if you are struggling keep going because you can do it!!
