After graduating 4 weeks ago by completing week 9 I've been working on hitting the magic 5k. I discovered I can run at a good pace but I still wasn't managing more than 3.5k. Almost made it last Sunday but an unexpected steep incline on a new route meant I had to break and walk a while. This morning, a dull warm muggy day after torrential rain yesterday I went out with determination. I cracked it. 3.29 mile - 5.3k. I hit the 5k at 47 minutes which feels slow but I was aiming to complete. Park runs in the autumn as planned feels achievable. I'm well pleased
