I did it, I really did!! I am so proud of myself and happy! I have heard some of you lovely people say about punching the air and feeling emotional after completing this one but I really could have cried real tears as I walked down my road with Laura telling me how well I had done. I cant quite believe that 6 weeks ago I couldnt even run for a minute let alone 25 minutes. To add even more to my joy, when I looked at runkeeper once home I realised that I completed the second half on a slight incline! I really deserved my creme egg last night.
So now to start maintaing longer runs and building up to the 30 minute mark. I have decided to stat ignoring the 5K side of the plan title and just concentrate on getting to 30 minutes for now and take it from there.
I have promised myself new trainers properly fitted for the end of week 9 and as I knew Laura was going to tell me that I was now a proper runner I bought a Buff yesterday and wore it to run last night as I no longer feel a fraud for wearing proper running stuff!! They are AMAZING. Who knows I may even venture into the leggings soon!!
Thanks again for all your support
