How on earth did I do that?

Just finished week 5 run 1! When I started this, running for one minute was almost impossible, and running for 5 was laughable, and then I've just done it three times... finally starting to get the runners high- I'm knackered, but elated 😀

The run was much better today, no rain, podcast didn't skip back and no idiotic pedestrians 😂 did have a dog who wanted me to chase them, and it was so hard not to stop and play!
