Never in my life have I ever done this before!

Yes, I have achieved the week 5 20 minute run that everyone else has managed and I really and honestly didn't think there was any chance of me doing.

The breathing was fine, I drank some water and splashed quite a lot and at the end finished the water, never done that before either. I was a bit beetroot but although I thought it seemed a long time each time Laura told me 5 minutes had gone I never felt like giving up. I really wanted to be able to say I had done it and didn't want to feel I had walked and cheated. I wanted that euphoria of having faced my daemon. There is nothing like the feeling afterwards.

For me I needed to prepare a bit more during week 5 but I am beginning to understand my body and I think I will know when I am ready for the next step or if I need an extra run before moving on.

It's increadable how my body has responded to the programme, I think the breathing started to settle in week 3 and I couldn't get the Laura regular breathing but that seems to have taken care of itself too.

Truly amazing!
