Went out in my new shoes feeling v nervous and distinctly not sure I could do this seemingly impossible run. The shoes definitely helped - like having sprung feet! But more than that what made the difference was believing what Laura said - that I'd trained for this so could do it. And I did - and it wasn't a bad experience at all - I even enjoyed some of it!! Listen all you folk who are unsure about whether this is just a run too far - if I (45, asthmatic, very overweight, professional exercise avoider) can do this then so can you! Best feeling ever. Here's to week 6!
