OMG I got there.............eventually!

Well it's been 3 months since my 'feeling like a failure' post and a lot has happened since then.

After severe pain, repeated chest infections, more problems with my lungs and a short stay in hospital, today I finally completed week 5 run 3, a full 20 minutes of jogging, WITHOUT STOPPING AT ALL, I can't quite believe that I did it.

The doctor pretty much laughed at me when I said in May that I wanted to try c25k , well when I come for my check up next week I will have the greatest pleasure in telling you that I've got over my biggest hurdle yet!

6 months ago, some days I struggled to walk up the stairs and today I actually jogged for a full 20 minutes, I feel so chuffed with myself.

If I can do this anyone can

  • Well done. Sorry to hear about your hurdles but you have done extremely well. I am not happy about your doc laughing at you though, this is quite insensitive! So glad you made it and when you graduate you will feel so happy. I did only a week ago and I am so happy with myself. Well done again.
