At last! I've been striving for months since finishing C25k in December and FINALLY cracked the sub-30 5k! 29 mins 41 seconds to be precise! I'm so happy. I'm 55 in a couple of months time and this is a real achievement for me.
When I graduated my time was about 35 minutes and I've been chipping away gradually, some good runs, some not so good, fair weather or foul, at least 3 times a week, falling in mud, getting soaked, having a tussle with nettles and taking a spectacular dive and limping home with bloody knees and ripped leggings. And it's WORTH IT!
I've done a few 10ks as well, the last time I did it in 1hr 6 minutes - now to chip away at that! Am treating self to fancy new running shoes and those lulu lemon shorts I've had my eye on for ages....
Lots of love xxxx
