Thanks to the supportive and encouraging advice on here I've successfully completed another 25 minute run this morning. I went for a 6K walk after school drop off for our now becoming regular weekly walk with a friend too. It's really making my legs stronger.
My friends are teasing me with a 10k run next year... reckon I should be able to run 5k and walk the rest. The 11K I did this morning took me 1hr40m so looks possible. So excited about how far I've come, it's mind blowing.
I've seen lots of new runner posts these last few days. Keep going, I could barely run a metre when I started. You can do it.
