Hey another first time blogger here! I have been lurking in the background reading all your brillant blogs and drawing confidence and inspiration from them! I don't think I would have got this far without it.. Thank you all sooo much. 13 weeks ago I was a smoker and couldn't have run for 30 seconds! Now I've been a non smoker for 85 days and this evening I have completed wk 6 r3. I can't say it was easy but I kept going and I did it. I ran for a whole 25 minutes!!! I still can't believe it... I lost my running partner (hubby) 2 weeks ago due to a knee injury so I've had to adjust to doing it alone.. Started running along a new route and on the way I pass a field, where most days there is a herd of deer grazing. The first day I nearly fell over in shock but now they have become my favourite part of my runs! I'm sure they're cheering me on! Or laughing! Not sure which, but on every run they look up and watch me run past. I have imagine them saying " there goes that mad red faced woman again" Anyway I am now a non smoker and according to Laura I am now also officially a runner yippee!!!! Wk 7 here I come!!!!
