Wk6 done!

Took a while and three attempts at run 1, but I managed the 25 min run today! I was back home for this one and finally put the insoles I bought into my trainers (I'm flat footed), and they really helped! Hardly any pain in my legs at all.

The hardest bit was the first 5 minutes, as expected, and I thought at that point I wasn't going to be able to do it. But I just kept it slow and steady, and once I got into it I noticed my breathing was a lot steadier. Funny to think after just six weeks I've gone from complete couch potato to being a runner!

Anyway, I'm waffling now. Onwards!

Week 6 is the worst. Once that’s behind you, you’re officially a runner and it’s plain jogging to the finishing line 👍🏻
