Samantha M I dont use FB, so in response to 'When the voices are all screaming for you to stop, what keeps you running?'
I keep going because with all the pain I live with it would be easy to give in and sit on the sofa in a pain killer induced haze. I decided I wasnt going to give in, I will get fit, I will live my life the way I want to and will not give in.

Samantha M Completed more running and knock a whole minute of the last runs time. (18:49s to cover 1.6 miles, its nothing amazing but its all progress), breathing is easier now but now the right knee is complaining so still having to walk too much. I will improve I WILL get fit.

keep at it Samantha, make sure you're stretching out and warming up so it may help your knee pain, #KeepRunning!

Samantha M up at 0550 (OMFG o'clock) and went for a run. Found i enjoyed burning up a short hill section I jogged back down and ran up again :). Happy that the pace is improving ans im not dead yet. Front of my thighs are a bit achey but all in all i feeeeeeeel good. Pacing and not going to mad at it and I think i can do this.

Samantha M So went for the first run for 8 years. Mild twinges but I took it slowly and listened to my body. just felt like I couldnt get enough air into my lung and 3 hours later i am still feeling a bit wheezy.

Well done Sam!! That's great!! Firstly you only gave up smoking at Christmas so understandably you'll feel wheezy, it took me a full year to feel "normal" after giving up smoking. Even with having given up for 10 years now, my first day on the road also was a bit tight in the chest, the more you do it the more you'll "loosen-up". Keep going!
