I would have been quite happy to have not done any exercise today, but I am in a team challenge that involves "doing" 5k. Chose a route closest to that distance where I live. Looked out the window - DARED the clouds to open up on me and set out walking. When I was out of sight of houses and dog-walkers I started to run. Well, a slightly-faster-than-walking attempt at a jog, anyway
. Didn't get very far before I had to stop - maybe 100 metres, but I managed better than I thought I would (expected to do about 5 steps and collapse). Managed a couple more little bursts too. very proud of myself.
Thankyou kiwi team. I would never have done that if it hadn't been for the first week's 5k timing activity.
