Well after my post the other day about the self doubt I put the gremlins in there place and got out there this morning and did it, Thursday is my weigh day, I decided if I lost 2 pound or more I would do the run today any less and I was giving myself an extra day and doing it tomorrow. Well I lost 4 pounds so I went out with a spring in my step, I managed to slip over on the ice on my 5 minute warm up walk and cut my knee and hand, I picked myself up and carried on, nothing or no one was getting in my way today, I decided instead of running around in a circle like I usually do to go a slightly different route which actually gave me different scenery to look at, the first 10 minutes seemed to pass quickly and I felt absolutely great, I started to find it hard at 18 minutes in but there was no way I was giving up, I decided to concentrate on my breathing and my music and before I knew it Laura was saying I could slow down to a walk, sorry for the epic post but I just feel so happy and proud of myself, I seriously can not believe the difference this programme has made to my life in just 5 short weeks.
Week 5 run 3 done and dusted I feel awesome! - Couch to 5K
