Week 5 run 2- completed...................now for the big one!!

I quite suprised myself last night and actually enjoyed my two 8 minute runs!

Not bad for someone 5 stone over weight and recovering from Achilles tendon surgery!

Someone came over to chat to me on the treadmill whilst I was doing the first run, I was amazed that I managed to hold a conversation , Couldn't have managed that at the start.Did get a little worried that I would miss Laura telling me to walk and thought I may run to much, but luckily I was ok.Took advice from people and slowed my run from 7km to 6.8 on the treadmill and found it easier.

So last week I was dreading the 20 min run,now I say 'bring it on'................
