Wow! I did it! I can't believe it but it's true. I ran continuously for 30 minutes and I took my 7-year-old daughter with me as a witness, lol. Bless her, not sure she realised just how slow I go, but she was brilliant and we managed approx 4km.
The last 12 minutes were into a stonking headwind, and so cold too, but we put our heads down and got there. Chuffed to bits. Never in a month of Sundays could I have envisaged running (jogging slowly - very slowly) for 30 minutes/4km when I started this 9 weeks ago.
Next challenge is to make it to 5km. It's going to take time and patience, got to do it slowly and steadily as I have been all along and hopefully get my strength and stamina up. It's about getting the distance, not the time, and I desparately want to be able to run further with my daughter and I know she can do 8km in about 50 minutes.
At the moment I'm revelling in the glory of completing my first 30 minute run!
Wine, anyone ? x
