Can't believe I just did that

As the title says, I can't believe I just ran for 5 minutes! I've just done Week 4 Run 1 and really surprised to find that I managed the whole thing without much difficulty. I get some pain in my calves as the muscles are really tight anyway (my bones grew more than my calf muscles), but I've learnt to push through it and carry on! So pleased :D
