Well guys I am very proud to say I ran week 5 run 3 today.
I ran for 20 mins without stopping!!
I have been dreading this for 2 weeks, but I knew Laura would get me through. I am afraid to say that I cried! In fact for the last 5 mins I had a big beaming grin on my face and when she said I had 2 mins left I started crying and actually speeded up. When she said we were finished I cried a little more. Fortunately the park was quiet! I nearly died, but I did it.
To all you new starters out there just keep going, follow the plan and you will get there. 5 weeks ago I couldn't run for 60 seconds, but look at me now. I am the wrong side of 40, gave up fags 7 weeks ago, 2 stone overweight and never done exercise in my adult life. I am astonished. Race for life in 6 weeks and I think I will get there. We have raised £250 so far and I can't wait.
Bring it on!!!!
