Well, I've taken longer than I wanted for weeks 7/8/9 due to the end of summer hols so back to work, weekend commitments and some evening meeting.... but tonight.... I completed my 3rd 5K run. I am so delighted. I am slow, it takes me just over 40 mins but I did it!
I never believed it was possible the first time I ran and struggled with 20 seconds. I have followed Laura's advice all along and am delighted that it has worked. I am very proud of myself. I'll keep up the running which I am really enjoying now and aim to slowly increase my speed over the same distance before going further.
Thanks to everyone on here for their support and comments. There have been times when I kept going when I was tempted to give up during a tough run, just to be able to come back on here and say that I'd done it.
This pig is flying.......................... :o)
