After graduation on the 10th June, we finally hit 5k today. For the last week we'd settled at 4.5k, on the last one speeding up for the last 500m. Today we were back on the golf course with its dreaded "up" and all too short "down". I kept in front of hubbie (who tends to go faster if he's in front but is perfectly happy at my steadier pace). I managed to keep pretty steady on the speed front. I switched from mapmyrun to runkeeper today because mapmyrun has lost its in app graphs. Runkeeper lady came in every 500m and at the 4k mark I said to hubbie we could go for 4.5 again, and speed up a bit, or stay steady and try for 5. We chose the latter, and finished the lap of the golf course with one of our field from the Laura days. I was so chuffed when mrs runkeeper said "distance 5km". Woo hoo! It took 40mins altogether. But we did 5k!!! I think we'll stick with the distance for a bit and work on pace now. But who knows? It has been nice to have an aim in mind....
