Only went and smashed it this morning - and in the rain !

W5R3 in the bag. I was soooo anxious before I started and the first 5 mins was a challenge but Jo Whiley pulled me through. In all honesty I have NEVER ran 20 mins in my life ( even walked pretty much through cross country as a kid) so this has been a huge breakthrough for me.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement

There are so many people here on C25K who say, that includes me, who after they have ran that 20 minute run of week 5 day 3 say that it is the longest run that they have ever done, just shows you what can be done if you try, once again well done to you all.
