Well in April of this year I started this app after a long term injury. I found it difficult to run the 90seconds let alone even considering in such a short time I could achieve 30minutes straight. But here I am a graduate for the first time in my life.
Its not been easy, Ive whinged, Ive moaned and tried to find excuses of why I shouldnt go. I have two young kids and work shifts including nights.
My job is stressful at times and so I know I have to take care of my health and heart so I can watch my girls grow up. So by chance I saw this app being plugged on TV and I am so greatful I did.
My heartburn and acid reflux have become minimal my waist line has shrunk and I have so much more energy to play with my kids now.
So tonight I pulled on my trainers reluctantly but knowing I would feel so much better at the end. I put my fur nieces dog lead on and off we set.
I never thought running with a dog would slow me down but she was litterally on my heels trying to where my trainers.
Then we encountered cows along the river towpath that I run (someone had left their gate open), so I had to drop and roll under some barbed wire to get into the next field to them to get passed them, then drop to get back onto the path whilst trying to stop the dog from trying to square up to them. She did until one turned to her and she ran the quickest of both of us with tail between her legs... ha ha ha.
Onwards we went to my half way point then turn around back towards home. Only to do the assault course to pass the cows again.
But still no stopping and YES YES YES YES I completed W9 R3. With 4.7k under my belt.
Now to enjoy a week off for my family holiday and then to consolidate my time and push on a bit further.
Thanks to my friends and family for their support and also to this community for inspiring me.
