The dreaded wk5 run 3!

I DID IT!!! Who'd have thought I would ever be able to run for 20 mins solid? Not me that's for sure. It is TOTALLY psychological. At 5 mins I thought how am I possibly going to do this another 3 times...At 10 mins I thought it might actually be possible but my calf was cramping a bit...At 15 mins with 5 to go I started smiling realising I could actually do this! At 2 mins I might actually have laughed out loud πŸ˜‚Amazing. I feel great and know now that 5k might actually one day be possible πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ’ͺ
