Well, this morning I decided to tackle the park run. My husband came with me for moral support, to cheer me on.
How demoralising when everyone overtook me and I overtook no-one. I was convinced I was last by a long way and I was giving myself a right talking to on the way round about how I wasn't a runner at all etc etc.
I walked for the last "hill" but ran the rest and ran to the finish, where I was relieved to find there were a few behind me.
I did it in 38mins34seconds - came 149th out of 154 runners :0)
In the car on the way home, I decided that maybe it wasn't so bad. I really was a couch potato before Christmas and I wouldn't have managed to run one of those laps, let alone the 3 I ran today!
I've looked at some of your times on here and I know I've a long way to go, but hey - I can run (almost) for 5 k
