  • Well done, you are right, it is a very emotional run. It is such an achievement in such a short time. Perhaps you could cycle or swim or take up yoga on the alternate days.

  • i do zumba 3 nites a week as well lol, dont fancy cycling or swimming and yoga i just wana run lol im addicted i think

  • dont overdo it or you may find you get an injury. you need that break for your muscles to recover fully.

    well done for the big 20min run ~ now you know that you CAN do it :)

  • I know what you mean about addiction - been running 8 k now for several weeks but out of action with a sprained ankle - really frustrating - go to the gym but its not the same

  • I learned my lesson about rest days... you eventually just get knackered if you don't take them! I had to have a whole week off running while my body recovered from the exhaustion of doing exercise every day for 2-3 weeks... ooops! Learn from my mistakes!

  • Huge congratulations.

    You sound like you are doing amazingly. Well done!!

  • wow, you are doing so well, when Laura says you deserve a pat on the back at the end of the runs I give myself a little pat, but i love you being so pleased with yourself - you deserve it.
