Guess what, I can run for 8 minutes, no I can't believe it either! spent all day trying not to think about it, got to the gym, trying not to think about it, got on the treadmill and turned on Laura and tried not to think about it. when she started to talk, I was suddenly thinking about it, could I do it? was it really possible? started off with the walk, launched into the run, decided to have a go and run for as long as I can, telling myself I can stop if I need to, suddenly I realised it was time to slow down and I had run for 8 whole minutes! when it came time to do it again, I thought you know what, I can do it! now, I am trying very hard not to think about the next one, the dreaded 20 minute one! got home and looked in the mirror and thought, yep thats definitely me! I can run for 8 minutes, who would have thought that 6 weeks ago! good luck to everyone else, and believe in your self! (and believe in Laura too).
