I'm freaking awesome!!

Hi everybody!

As you might have gathered from my very enthusiastic title, today's run was spectacular! I haven't posted for a while as I didn't have much to say whilst battling the flu followed by a viral infection. But I was good, I ate healthily, I took my meds and I set out for my first run again today.

Based on the feedback I received following my previous run, I decided to just listen to week 7 and if I feel too tired to continue, I'll walk a bit but at least then I'll know what my limits are and I'll take it from there.

Firstly, I have to say that I missed Laura. Hearing her voice it was like listening to a long lost family member.

I felt I was slower, which was good. I didn't pant or gasp for air. I followed a nice steady pace and before I know it 25 minutes were done! I did it!! I did a very light jog for 25 minutes, but no walking breaks and it wasn't too bad. Based on my Fitbit I completed 4.28 km, which isn't too bad, right? No stopping me know, graduation is within reach. I can do this!!
