OMG I actually can't believe it. I've just run for 20 mins. Kept it slow and steady but kept going and I LOVED it!
I have never enjoyed any exercise before and now I actually look forward to my runs (except this one - which I dreaded but then smashed it!).
5 weeks ago I was the definition of a couch! Never run before, over weight (still working on that one) and leading a ridiculously busy life with 'no time' for exercise. This programme really works, I've rerun a couple of runs along the way but I feel amazing that I managed to run non-stop FOR TWENTY MINUTES!
If I can do it really anyone can. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I under-went Chemo, surgery and radiotherapy. Thank G I am 2 years in remission but it's taken time for my body to recover. Running is the next stage to keeping me healthy and cancer-free.
Thank you to everyone for all your posts. It's been really useful to read about other people's journeys and been a big support knowing others have succeeded.
Bring on week 6.
