1st one done!

Princess1980 profile image

Woke up this morning and thought will start tomorrow......Then the thought of still being like this at Christmas spurred me to get up and in my running clothes and out the door! I won't lie it was bloody hard work! Sarah telling me I'm doing great when I felt like falling over did spur me on! People walking there dogs must of thought I had lost my marbles! Every time I heard the words are u ready I was saying no thank you! But I did it! I'm bright red and super sweaty but I feel good! I did this by myself for myself!

Well done.

You can do this!

Thank you!

Sounds just like my first run. As the weeks progressed I surprised myself more and more. My first 3 minute run and I was over the moon. Got to week 4 and had my first 5 minute run, I couldn’t feel my legs by the end of it. Today I have completed week 9 run 1, a full 30 minutes. I never thought I could do that but somehow with the determination that I want to do this for myself I have. Stick with it, tell yourself you can do it because you really can, it is achievable. When my legs start to hurt and that part of brain starts telling me to just stop because it hurts, I now tell myself to embrace the pain, it means that it is working and my body is transforming, I won’t get anywhere without a little pain and I tell myself I can do it. Stay positive, be strong and you will do it xx

Well done! I had to make myself do lots of them, funny the huge list of excuses my brain came up with but I didn't miss any! Hope it all goes well for you!

Thank you!
