Felt so excited about this run and totally inspired by all the blogs on week 5 and those leading into week 6. Kept the mantra 'mind over matter' but in the first 5 minutes my legs went to lead and I knew I was going to struggle but I kept with it.
Before I knew it was 10 minutes done, I honestly have never run for 10 minutes without stopping in my life. [At school we used to hide in the bushes and smoke fags instead!!]. There was no way I could do another 10 but I kept going and all of sudden it was 15 and as a blogger said before it was only 5 left and I've done 5 before a few times so on I went. Then Laura said 2 minutes and my legs went to lead again but blow me I stuck with it and it was finished.
Completely in shock and have faith in the whole programme - in week 2 I remember thinking I could never run for 5minutes let alone 20, that was just ridiculous and what fit people did. Not people like me I could never do it.
I even don't feel as worn out as I did after some of the other runs, yes I had a bit of cramp at the end and I'm aching now but I actually love it.
This is amazing and I will complete the program - at the moment I feel I could do anything.
Off to celebrate with a cold one !
