Feeling elated!😃

Sorry for the long post but I am so chuffed that I completed W3R1! I actually had nightmares about running last night and spent today trying to avoid it with excuses (my partner is away in wales with minimal signal) I managed to miss the sunshine and by the time I had convinced myself to do it it was pouring down but I smashed it and even did a cheeky extra 2 min run at the end! My run is much slower than my walk and I was really controlled and concentrating on breathing I actually ran less distance as I slowed down but I completed the 3 circuits of the park anyway which is what it has taken to do the programme so I assume that’s about 5k but I’m not bothered my goal is to be able to run 3 circuits of the park 3 times a week and I’m even beginning to believe I can do it! 🏃‍♀️😆👏 thanks for all your support - it’s because of you I went out and did it today! 👍
