Well I have done it! woo hoo!
Ive had my ups and downs but Ive finally got here! (yes I live in a valley )
I am still having to pause once or twice (I have a rare lung disease and I dont fully exhale my lungs so if I stop and squat down I feel much better - but look like a muppet!) so I still have work to do and theres always speed and strength to work on...
But I felt so good, I must have been glowing and grinning like an idiot cos when I started the warm down walk I forgot the roundabout has one lane into two lanes and nearly got mowed down by a green car!!!!!! (My fault and Im usually sooooo careful)
