I did it๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Sun is shining, it's pretty warm already and I took the Lidl special shoes off to my favourite route - the sea wall. To my delight the grass has had its annual cut so no more picking my way carefully through the long grass. I'm later than usual so have bumped into quite a few people this morning, fortunately not wasp woman๐Ÿ˜ก, but it didn't bother me a jot. I wore my lovely outfit from Sainsbury's "Live Love Run" coz I am a runner ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿธ.

I'm a long way off covering 5k but that's my next goal I went further and faster than previously so each run is improving on the last one today I covered a total of 4.86km including warm/cool time. I estimate I ran 3.55km of that but that's a damn sight further than I ever thought I could!

I have to say I looked back at my first ever post on this forum before writing this one and realise just how far I have come. For anyone just starting out believe me when I say you can do it. I was in agony those first few weeks but this forum helped me through along with a lot of determination. If I can do it anyone can and I am so glad I have. I'm lighter, fitter and happier. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

Well done possum! Now were those 9 weeks or so worth it?! I think it is a really short time to go from running 1xmin intervals to running for 30 min and I love how this programme is making runners of us all. You glow and sparkle and be proud of what you have achieved. Looks like you've inspired your good man to follow in your footsteps too ;)
