Week 9 run 3 yesterday and I cannot believe I got here! I started back in January and had to abandon running at week 7 under physio's orders. Started again in August and decided to take 2 or 3 days between runs rather than aim for 3 runs a week - I also stretched before and after every run and it seemed to make a difference. No shin pain and my knee has been fine. Anyway yesterday I got on that treadmill and managed to do the 5k distance for the first time - this however includes the 5 min warm up and warm down so I know I need to up my pace but I am so pleased. I still remember struggling to run for 60 seconds on week 1 and saying that it seemed impossible. I've never been able to run for any length of time. Even at school I was a sprint person, cross country was so not my thing! I have asthma so my breathing was always and issue but I followed Laura's ti[s and conquered it. Thank you Laura and everyone here for your help and support. Now how do I get graduate status and my badge??
