ducks :D

I am new to this and an unfit 48 whose not run since school. Two kids, asthma and surviving cancer later, here I am. I have thought about doing this for a while and finally stepped out for the first time last week.

Ive just come in from w1r1 version2! I didn't feel ready for week 2 so decided to repeat week 1.

I managed to complete all the runs this morning including the 6th 60 seconds which was my nemesis as it's (very) slightly up hill.!!

Rewarded by seeing ducks flying over :D feeling happy and next Sunday hopefully I will be ready to embark on week2!!
