I ran for 20 mins!!!!

The running has gone better than the blogging. I have completed week 5 run 3 and did 20 minutes without stopping. I would never have thought I would have been able to do this when I started. If you're reading this and are at the beginning just keep going, you will get there. Things that I have found important were to get my breathing right, and to stretch my legs so that they did not ache as much. I have amazed myself.
