I woke up this morning with a very sore throat but I was determined to go ahead with the dreaded 20 min run as today was my day to give it a go. I went out into a beautiful sunny morning at 6.30am and started my run.
I felt the first 5 minutes went slow and I thought Laura would never tell me that the 5 minutes were up but I kept thinking of all the stories of success I had read on this website over the last few weeks and I was determined that I was going to do it as well. I was then beginning to feel a bit more comfortable for the next ten minutes and then there was only five to go. When Laura told me that I had done it, I was totally elated. I did a little victory dance on the spot and there were a group of people on the beach starting to do a boot camp that were looking at me as if I was mad.
I just want to say that if I can do this anybody can, I have never done any excercise really in my life and I suppose I never really believed that I could, people like me dont run! But now we do!
I have spent the last 11 years bringing up my 3 children and working and I suppose like many of us I sort of got lost in all that. Now finally I feel I am doing something for me. So if you are thinking of starting DO and if you are in Week 1 or 2 Keep going! We can all do this.
Thank you NHS and Laura.
