Thanks to everyone for your support - I couldn't believe I'd ever get here but I have. Yesterday I ran 5.01 kms in 32.58 minutes (I know that's slightly longer than planned but I'm using the app and Laura isn't always the best timekeeper so I keep Endomondo running in the background) .
I'm so pleased with myself I can't tell you (although of course you already know ). Big question is what to do next. Now I feel like a runner and I don't want that feeling to go and I would like to keep improving.
Don't think I'm interested in racing but would like to perhaps get to running 5/6 miles 3 times a week. Does anyone know of any other training programs like Laura's?
What did you all do next ?
