I really can't believe it but today I did run 27 of 27 at the local parkrun. Have never achieved anywhere near 5k during the program - struggled to get to 3.5k in the first two runs of week 9, but today, I achieved 5k in around 35 minutes without stopping or walking once.
If I'm honest I hated every minute of it - at the start i couldn't see how I was going to get round, but stuck with it and even avoided getting lapped by my husband who does it sub 18 mins. Feel a bit bad that I ditched Laura for this one after being so loyal for the other 26 runs, but can't thank her enough for getting me to this stage. In week one I was struggling to run for one minute.
So, if I can do it, so can everyone else out there, so please all stick with it.
By the way, how do you mark yourself as a graduate so it shows up against your blogs?
