I made it! I can do it!
I'm still fat, still puffy, still a beetroot, but today I ran for 35 minutes non stop in an attempt to hit that magic 5 k! I managed...... Wait for it.... 4.95 km!!! That last few metres still evades me, but I'm so close I can't believe it!
Thanks to everyone here for the inspiration and encouragement. I never thought it would be possible!
Still got to get that 5k though! Lol! So.....What then? Not sure I feel the need to further, but how do I avoid boredom?
