W5 R3 - I did it!!

Hello all,

I just wanted to thank you all for the advice about taking it slow and believing I can do it. I had your tips in my head as I completed a whole 20 minute jog yesterday!

I dropped the treadmill down from the usual 7.0/7.5 to 6.0 as I thought as long as I am jogging and not walking it still counts so as long I complete 20 minutes I will be happy..and I did!!! :D It was tough at times but towards the end I watched a video on Youtube and focussed on the content, the last 5 minutes flew by because I didn't think about the fact I was running!
