That's it people! I've just got back from tonight's run and am absolutely thrilled to say I've finally run 5k, in 34 minutes! Woohoo!!
It's been a long time coming since I started this program in about August last year, but what with house moves and shin splints it's not been easy and to be honest running 5k seemed like a distant dream last year!
My shins are giving me a bit more trouble after tonight's run so am pleased I'll be seeing the physio tomorrow - think I will have to go easier for a while but am hoping a nice hot bath tonight might help.
In the meantime, I'm basking in my runner's high! Still can't believe I've done it, wow!
Thanks everyone for all the support
