Week 5 run 3 done thanks to your support!

Well I did it, never thought it possible! At 8 mins into the 20 minutes I reminded myself that I have proved I can go that long already, at 10 minutes in I gave myself permission to stop at 15 minutes if I needed to, but I kept going. After 15 minutes I thought about you guys and all the inspirational stories you share and before long there was only 2 minutes left and there was no way I was giving up, so thanks for your support - it stopped me feeling alone.

  • Yay well done! I did this run today too! Feeling so chuffed! Want to go back to my week 1 self and say "look what we just did!" 😁

    Not sure exactly how many days it takes to form a new habit but in feel if we've got this far we must be almost there!
