I did it! I ran 25 straight minutes and it was a breeze. I thoroughly enjoyed this run, more so than the 20 minute run of week 5. I'm a few hours away from starting my last night shift, I'm packing in between and cleaning the house ready for our trip tomorrow and finishing week 6 has just made me more excited for what's to come. I have every intention of running whilst out in Dublin! I have 3 runs planned whilst in Dublin so I'll have finished week 7 by the time I return next week.
I'm over the moon that I've managed to achieve so much in 6 weeks and I've noticed a massive improvement in my abilities, stamina and just general attitude towards a sport. Running is definitely for me and I know, in 3 weeks when I finish I'll just want to continue on and keep improving. I'm delighted with my progress and I'm so ready for week 7.
Today was even better, Brian (my boyfriend) got me a foam roller and a yoga mat for Christmas and having these has made running, stretching and recovering easier. I did yoga today as well and noticed a huge difference in my posture and ability to stretch further than I ever have.
Absolutely over the moon and keen for next week already!
