Well who'd have thought it!

I managed to run for 20 minutes non stop today! All day I kept remembering and saying in my head "20 minutes!"

I can't lie that I am feeling it in my thighs tonight but it's a good feeling knowing what I did it without stopping - what a fantastic feeling. To think I was anxious in earlier weeks, I'd never imagined I'd get this far - it's true what everyone says, believe in the program! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Thank you - well I hope it inspires someone because I started this barely able to run from one lamppost to the next - I didn't believe in myself but I'm coming round to the idea that I

may just do this!

Who'd have thought it indeed - you say exactly how we all have felt/are feeling during this process. It's such a heck of an achievement, you're a running star!

I was apprehensive but it wasn't until I switched the app on that I thought I was in for 2 x 10 minute runs, not a full 20 minutes in one hit!! But go for it, you'll be amazed at yourself - just push through it and try to distract your mind from what you are doing!!
