5k finally!!!

5k finally!!!

It’s been a month since I completed the Couch to 5k app and I’ve just run 5k for the first time! I spent three weeks consolidating the 3x30min runs and then took a week off because my leg was twinging. This was my second run back and I wasn’t aiming for 5k but when I got going I realised my app was not set to just measure time but set to measure a 5k distance so I thought “Okay, I’ll give it a go!” It helped that it’s a bit rainy where I am and that cooled me down. I even set a good pace by my standards so I’m currently feeling very pleased with myself!

Yes, it’s weird! I’ve been trying to slow down at the start to even put my pace but today I just decided to go at whatever felt comfortable at the time and this was the result!
