13 whole minutes

13 whole minutes

So being nervous about the scary 20 minute run next week, we decided to gradually build up the last run! Now bear in mind the longest I have ever run for outside is 5 minutes, today we managed 13 minutes! I don't know where it came from! 2.5 mins in, I didn't think I would make it to 5, but some how a second win came from no where! Determined to add one minute on, I some how forgot to look at my clock and I had gone over 1 minute so thought to 2 and then it made sense to get to a total of 10 minutes, then I got to my favourite area to run, the only flat part of our run and thought, I can get to the end of this bit! Next thing you know we have run 13 minutes non stop! Boring story I am afraid, but I can't stop smiling and loving life right now! Less than 6 weeks ago I couldn't run a minute!!!
