I just ran 20 minutes without stopping!! Woohooooo!

I cannot believe it, and definitely wouldn't have believed it 4 weeks ago, but I did it! And it felt good!

I found regulating my breathing easier and now realise (after a high protein intake of midges) why it is best to breathe in through your nose! Tho I do sill find this hard?!

Anyhow, if, like I was, you are dreading any of the weeks /runs coming up, I urge you to just have faith in the programme! I literally have gone from zero exercise, binge drinking and fast food/takeaway diet to running 20 minutes non stop! Can't believe it!
