Feeling Quite Chuffed

My daughter (who is a club runner) always goes on about me not running very fast. However, I have just finished week 7 run 2 and when I checked my distance on Map My Run I found out that I had run just over 5k in 25 minutes.

Considering that I only started running in February and I have had a couple of injuries, I'm really proud of myself!!! :-)

Hmm, pretty good. I would be happy to be sub 30 minutes at the end of Week 9 :)

That's why I was so chuffed. I thought 5k by the end of week 9 was a tall order. I think my daughter has been playing a few mind games on me.

Sounds quick to me! I ran just over 5k yesterday in 34mins so thats slow, I'm just about to start Week 9 just went abit further yesterday

You SHOULD be proud, that sounds very fast to me! I've just started week 8 and still only getting to about 3.6k - I am definitely a plodder. You, however, sound like Road Runner to me :-)

Thanks, but then I think about my daughter, who is an U13 but did a 3k cross country this year in 9 mins 6 seconds (she didn't win, the girl that won did it in 8 and a half minutes) and think omg, one day maybe!!!! Lol

Vespa by name, vespa by nature! Very whizzy running, by my standards! Very well done - you will be streaking alone in no time!

I meant, of course, streaking along! And come to think of it, I don't mean streaking in 'that' sense, just running fast!

If I was streaking, I would be running at world record pace. I have got a body like a wind chime!!!!! Lol
