Cannot believe I have achieved this today. I almost cried with joy when I realised I had run the full five minutes! Was soooo excited that I even did a bit of extra running on the way home ( I always seem to end up about five minutes from home even with the 5 min warm down).
Then met my neighbour - young, fit, slim, planning to do a half marathon next weekend - who has invited me to go running with her.... erm, maybe in a few more months!? lol but not quite ready for that. Still, i feel so good for actually achieving this much and doing something about my fitness and weight. i feel more full of energy and am sleeping better. Weirdly I am actually looking forward to the next run?!
