Did I say I was quietly looking forward to this run? I felt as if I had gone back to the beginning! On the positive side the walk was good but then the first 5 mins, my legs felt like lead and my mind was saying 'What you want me to run again you have to be joking' But racing to my rescue was Laura, what would I do without her to give me encouragement during all the pain. I kept going until my mind said 'So whats the problem you can do this' I enjoyed the 8 min and strangely looked forward to the last 5 minutes as well. It really is mind over matter or should I say body! I am so determined to finish all the runs and run the Race for Life with my daughter. If anyone else is struggling at this stage just keep going you will get there. Thank you all once again for your inspirational stories and comments they are a huge help.
