Hi everyone, just a quick update to say i completed week 5 today!! I was pretty nervous about the 20 minute run so i got up at 5:30am to run when it's quiet and noone is around to see my potential struggle! It was a freezing cold morning but pretty still and dry so nice conditions. After 5 minutes, right on cue, i started to get a stitch in my right side- this has ben happening like clockwork ever since week 4. However i kept going, only stopping for a few seconds to bend over which seemed to alleivate the pain. When Laura said i had done 20 minutes i was feeling so good i kept going and ended up running all through the warm down so that makes a total of 25 minutes continuous running! Couldn't stop smiling when i got home, i never believed I could run for 25 minutes at the start of this programmes but it shows what a good mental attitude can do and to trust the programme!! Onwards to week 6 next week
