I cannot believe I did this, it is amazing! I was getting really worked up just before the run, I kept fiddling with my socks as I could feel a bump on the right one (never had this before) I walked out of the door and for the first 8 minutes into the app I could feel the bump. I kept thinking I was going to have to stop and go back home. However miraculously I got into my stride and started looking around. The cat, the post man, the birds, the window cleaner and I realised that being outside was a wonderful thing to be doing. It hit me this was seriously a matter of psychology and I had been procrastinating and looking for an excuse to fail with the bump in my sock
At 8 minutes or so into the jogging it started to pelt with rain and I was actually smiling! When Laura told me I had run for 10 minutes tears of joy were cascading down my cheeks. I felt a momentous sense of feeling proud. I have never in my life run for this long. At 15 minutes I was feeling tired but actually lengthened my stride for a bit, in order to release some of the tension in my 5 stone overweight bum - it worked!
Back to a gentle sloooooow jog for the last 4 minutes and that was it.
