I thought I would be able to keep up with this blogging thing but I've not had internet access for a while. I'm pleased to say though, that I am still going strong and have just completed week 5 of the plan. I have also stopped stopping whenever I see other people which is one of the main things that always made me feel disappointed with myself and like I had cheated. Today, I saw 4 people but I just gave them a friendly nod and carried on running. I am very proud of myself today and hope everyone else is doing well, whatever stage of the program you are all up to.

I have also found a regular 5k run near me so will be going along to that in the next couple of weeks.
