It's not a fluke - I really can run for 30 minutes!

It's not a fluke - I really can run for 30 minutes!

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.

Happy Mo :-)

Well done Mo - I hope you are really feeling proud of yourself, it is an amazing achievement. I know what you mean though, I still struggle to believe that I can actually run for 30 minutes. Look forward to seeing your lovely shiny green badge and to read about your further adventures in running :-)
