Week 7 run3 - hot hot hot

It was very hot this morning when I started off on the warm up walk. I was walking along thinking it's hot hot hot but I feel good. I started of running a my breathing settled really quick. I ran along thinking, just seven weeks ago the thought of running for sixty seconds seemed like a mountain to climb, and here I am now feeling quite strong and comfortable and Laura had just told me I'd been running for five minutes now. A smile appeared on my face then, and it stayed there the whole way through my run. I even ran for a little after Laura said to stop 😀 which was good.

When I got home I checked run keeper and to my great surprise I smashed my previous times with a 10: 20 for my first km! I feel on top of the world 😀🎉😀

Bring on week 8 and 28 minutes! Can't wait 😀

Good luck to everyone whatever run you are doing!!!
