20 minutes done, Yay!

Changed venue today and ran along the river bank. And yes, I did it too! 20 minutes and I wasn't even out of breath at the end of it. Not that it was easy - legs quite achey and feet hurt but that's cos I'm running in trainers and not proper gait-anayzed-shoes. Thanks to all of you for encouragement 5 weeks ago and of course Laura too - music is not my cup of tea but the rhythm is just what we need - I actually raise my arms and click my fingers to the beat when there's a decent track! I know, they'll take me away and lock me up soon... See you after Week 6 Run 1. Bfn guys!

  • Well done, Delia! Knew you would be fine with the 20 mins. It's a great boost to the morale, a big milestone. Is it still hot there in Italy? Pouring rain here and generally starting to look and feel like autumn. See you soon!

  • Thanks Soozz. Yes it is still hot in Italy, temperatures in the thirties after midday, but it was quite cool at 7.30 am - even so, I had to avoid the sunny bits, if you see waht I mean. And the dogs. Lots of angry looking dogs around this morning being walked by their owners.Woodcutters, dogs, whatever next?! Have a nice day and bfn.

  • great mum!

  • Thanks Becks and good luck on Week 2 xox Mum

  • So chuffed for you, well done it's an amazing feeling week 5, you only have more fantastic runs to look forward to. Change of scenery always makes for a pleasant change. :-) enjoy week 6.

  • Thanks Phil! Remember how scared I was at the start? Who would have believed I could come this far.

    Anyway, how are you enjoying graduation? Have you done many runs? Have you got a playlist without Laura? Delia

  • Yes and look at you now, running by the river, foreign cities, amazing what a difference a few weeks can make.

    I try to run every other day, but dropped one run this week due to one of my knee's giving me a warning, swam instead, but managed to get out last night, not keen on evening runs, much prefer mornings. Definately have a couple of playlists without Laura :-)
