Yay....I did it 20mins

Well I was dreading this morning knowing that the biggest run so far was o nthe cards and agreed with Laura it is more of a mental challenge that a physical one. My legs were quite happy but my brains were saying I couldn't go on and with Laura keeping quiet I felt quite panicky at times about hom much longer i'd got to go. But did do it! After feeling that I had been running for ages I had only reached the 5 minute market but after that it did get better and when Laura told me 2 mins to go I was feeling really good and felt I could ahve done more but did stop when she told me. Haven't looked ahead to next run yet so wil lsee how it goes!

  • Well done :-) So pleased to read this - I'm busy procrastinating.... I've got to do this run this afternoon and I'm so scared! I've just had a late lunch so know I can't run for another hour or so - eek! Delighted for you that you've made it through :-)

  • Well done, just one week ahead of you, there is no going back only forward now!

    Its the best feeling ever to be able to run in one complete session.

  • Well done!
