Today was the day! I have been working towards this week since April 17th - after eating copious amounts of Easter eggs! I can't actually believe that I ran for 30 mins; was quite tired afterwards. My next challenge is actually running 5k as at the present it's about 3.8km. I am assuming that over time when I get a bit fitter I'll be able to go a bit faster. Wish I'd known about this forum in the beginning.
