W5R3 DONE!!!!!!

I still cant quite believe that I have just run for 20 mins non stop but I have. Laura helped me right from the start, and when she said I had been running for 5 miins I thought 'thats ok I can run for 8 mins' when she said I was half way through I thought 'I can run towards home now'. The10 - 15 mins part of the run for me was the hardest and I began to struggle but concentrated on my breathing (told myself to keep breathing!!) and putting one foot in front of the other. Laura then told me I had 5 mins to go, so I just put my head down and ploughed on. Before I knew what had happend I had completed the run, I am so excited by this as I never thought I that I could run for so long. Quietly looking forward to W6R1 now.
