Weeeeee!! I did it! I actually flipping did it! I'd say it's a better feeling than chocolate but I'd be lying. It is however a close second.
I was supposed to do the run yesterday but it was pouring down with rain and I was very tired so thought I wouldn't set myself up for a fall.
This morning I felt good. There was a slight breeze keeping it at a cool 10 degrees so off I set on my 5 minute walk. When Laura told me to start running, off I went. Nice steady pace. "You've been running for 5 minutes" - wait, what?! Is that all? Surely it's been longer than that!! Ok, keep going, one foot in front of the other. 10 minutes down. Ok half way through. Round the corner I went, dodge the dog walker, round the group of ramblers warming up and now I'm 15 minutes in. I think I might actually do this. Plod plod plod, I'm really hot now, I've slowed down a little bit because the end is so close. 2 minutes to go.......and there is Laura telling me I've done it. No way!! The grin on my face is instant and I'm so proud and pleased with myself for not stopping. It really was mind over matter for me today. There were a couple of times where I thought I could have a cheeky walk but I didn't - I just kept going and I'm pleased that I did.
If this is how I feel after this week, how on earth am I going to feel when I finish the plan. Looking forward to that feeling!!
Very happy face ticked on the app today.
