W5R3 - Laura, we did it together!

Well. I honestly didn't think I would be writing this, but we did it! Thanks to the encouragement and support of you guys, what seemed frighteningly impossible on Wednesday has been done. 20 mins non stop. It was windy and raining but the gremlins accepted their loss today and allowed me out without grumbling - after all, I wasn't going to be able to managed 20 minutes anyway, so they sat at home, waiting in their smugness for me to return defeated.

Well. Laura and I wiped the smile of their faces as I came in through the door, drenched, but happy.

Never mind, they said to me, they'll get their own back in W6.
