week 5 run 3

Ohhhhh yes bloody smashed wk 5 run 3 of couch to 5k tonite. This was the 1st big block run for me , 5 min warm up then a straight 20 minute jog then 5 min warm down . Covered 1.4 miles in 20 min and covered the magic first target of 1 mile in14m 21 secs. . I know you will find this hard to believe but im sitting on my front door step legs all jellied and wobbly im welled up tears in my eyes . Never expected to feel so emotional but guess it shows how much i wanted this one in particular . If only i had the energy , i would have gone off plan and tried for another half mile and that would of given me the 3k ,but id given all i had for 4 blocks of 5 minute runs , but That will come soon enough . cant believe ive done it im halfway there now
