Well the weeks have flown by.
First it was 'what - run for 60 seconds - that sounds like within my capabilities'.
Then it 'what 8 minutes - how did we jump to 8 minutes?'.
Now I've just done week 9 three times - yes three times! Run 1 was quite easy, having built up stamina and confidence over the preceding 8 weeks. Then run 2 so an absolute PAIN, what with mega-stitch. Then today, run 3 was GOOD, really good! I now know Laura was right I can run for 30 mimutes.
So to all you 'not quite believers' - have confidence YOU CAN DO IT.
