Getting a buzz from week 6 run 3

Well well well. In just a few weeks I have gone from being barely able to run for 60 seconds to running for 25 minutes non-stop. And it didn't kill me. And I want more! It was tough for sure and I was glad when I heard "OK you can slow to walking now" but wow what a feeling. I know I can do this now and anyone else in the same position - you can do it too! I know there are tough tests to come in the next three weeks, but there is no way I am going to stop now. Already at my lowest weight for at least 20 years having lost three stone and only three to go until I am officially in the "healthy" range. Don't know how long it will take me to get there, but I will, be it in six months, a year, or two years. I went to a wedding at the weekend and was pleased that so many people noticed I had lost weight.

Keep up the good work everyone - seriously, if I can do this, then so can you
