W9R3 - Graduation! 5.6km! 5km in 26'12"!!!

W9R3 - Graduation! 5.6km! 5km in 26'12"!!!

Hi all!

Just came back from my graduation run and it went very well. I delayed it by an hour because it was so hot when I got home. Also I wore my C25K graduation top for the first time! See below for my time splits:

1km - 4'59"

2km - 5'33"

3km - 5'17"

4km - 5'20"

5km - 5'02"

I started at a fast pace and then settled in a comfortable but challenging pace. When I got to 3km I knew I was on for a 5km PB but i would have to push myself a lot. I pushed through the 4th km and then really pushed in the 5th km and reached 5km in 26'12". I then slowed down for the final 4 minutes but still ran my longest run of 5.6km. Please use the link for more detail on the run.

I would like to thank everyone who has had kind words over the last few weeks. I only started blogging half way through C25K but found it before I began the programme and have read many inspirational posts. I wish everyone good luck in their journeys and am now going to run off to get my graduation badge!

Thanks Wilmacgh! I'll be trying to build up to 10km next. May have to slow down for that!

Congratulations upon graduating in such amazing style and speed! :D

Although a graduate of some weeks now, I'm still nowhere near as fast as that ... I do hope you will continue and perhaps enter for some of the many races around the country - wearing your C25K shirt you'd be such a great ambassador for the programme ;)

Best wishes and well done, Linda :)

Thanks Linda! There is a Park Run not far from where I live so I may go to a few of them.
