Week 6 & Park Run

I hurt my calf on week 5 . Had to have 7 days rest until it didn't hurt again.

Now I am on week6. Yesterday i did the Northampton Park run and I finished it in 31 mins!

I am amazed. At christmas i weighed 20 stone. i started a diet then the couch to 5K podcasts. I started the running & could not run 1 minute! i stuck with it had the asthma attacks and all. I have now lost 4 stone and ran a 5K race!!!

i am so glad that i found this and stuck at it.

The purpose of this post is i suppose to shout at the world I DID IT!!

but it is also to say to anyone struggling, keep at it wether it be diet or running keep at it and like everyone keeps saying, 'you will do it and can do it'.

thanks to all for advise and motivation .
