Today I have run 5k!
I've been managing about 4k with the help of the podcasts, but today - w9r3 - I kept going to run for a full 5k.
I'm not saying it was pretty, there were a few concerned looks from dog walkers and I still look like a beetroot in Lycra, but I managed to run for 49 minutes.
Nine weeks ago I couldn't have ran to the end of my road and now I can run for 3 miles. I am so proud of what I have achieved with the help of the podcasts.
I've ran in frost, rain, after 12 hours at work and when I didn't feel like it. As much as I have worked my muscles, I feel as if I have trained my brain to rise to the challenge. I can do anything if I try and maintain the effort.
Onwards and upwards then - going to try and lose weight properly and keep on running, see if I can do it a bit quicker! But it doesn't matter how fast (or slow) I am, I'm doing it and that's all that matters.
