Week 9 Run 1.....OMG OMG OMG

Week 9 Run 1.....OMG OMG OMG

Hi All,

Well I only went and did it! Did it and some. Best pace so far and once I'd settled into it I was fine. My breathing was better tonight and I calmed down. I didn't feel anxious at all on my way round. I found it tough going but I ran for the whole 30 minutes. Not sure what Saturday was about but I'm glad I didn't repeat it and just cracked on!

I'm feeling very very proud of myself right now.

Hope you have done okay Saul. You were with me kicking my butt all the way around!!!! ;-)
