C25kb450 OMG I ran for 20 mins!

Completed Wk5 this morning. A lifetime first I think. The gremlins in my head still telling me it couldn't be done, sod the bloody gremlins, I nailed it. Now they're talking me it was a 1-off!! I'm learning to trust Laura though I do backchat her a bit! Who'd have thought it, me running 20 mins!?!

...and we know those pesky gremlins tell fibs don't we?

They said you could never even run for five minutes... how wrong they were!

Look at you now!

So how amazing are you? Just bask in the glory, and then onwards and upwards...slow and really steady :)

Well done! Now slap some duct tape over those gremlins' gobs and put them in the cupboard under the stairs so that you can bask in you glory. Onwards and forwards!

There are no such things as gremlins by the way. As from now. Kick em into touch

Good going there by the way. Take care. Enjoy yourself!
