week 5run 3 (2nd attempt)

Yesterday I tried again the 20 minutes run and I cannot believe but I did it. I want to be honest with you and I cheated a little, I walked half a song around the minute 12 but after just around 90 seconds I decided to start running again and I finished and completed the run. I am quite sure that snails in the park were faster than me but I did it.

I feel amazing and I am looking forward to the first run of week 6 that seems too easy now.

Thank you very much for all your support and good luck for those of you that are now doing week 5. It is a very hard week but you feel amazing after that.
