So all week, this run has been looming and I have been quite worried about it. The 20 minutes last week felt tough and I wasn't quite sure I could do another 5 minutes this week... well not only did I do another 5, I did another 13! Today I started with my 5 mins and ran for 33 minutes and covered 4.74 km ... Total time was 40 minutes.
Never in my life have I run this far in one go... ever!
When I started out my run today (in very drizzly weather) I wasn't sure I would even do 5 minutes but then I managed to get into my rhythm. I'm so thrilled to have started this journey - it has truly been the best thing I have ever done for myself.
For anyone starting out and feeling like it's too hard or - believe me it is. Follow the process, be kind to yourself and listen to your body. I could honestly barely make the first week of running and here I am 2 months later doing this. Stick with it - I promise you won't regret it.
