Start of week 6 - my third post

Yikes ! I have come so far. Last night I ran for 20 minutes non stop. Slow and steady but I don't care. At the moment I am averaging 10 minutes per kilometre. As I said before I am pushing 60 with a few health issues. But 5 short weeks ago I struggled with the one minute run and now well I've already said it, I ran for 20 minutes. Stop reading the posts on here and get out and do it, I DID XX
