And... I'm done!

Graduate run done this lunchtime! Its a really lovely day as well so was feeling good about it. I had decided that rather than killing/injuring myself trying to do the 5k in 30mins I would plug away until I reached the distance and not worry about time.

I decided on a familiar route that I like and off I went. I was feeling pretty good at ten minutes so when I hit 15 mins I snuck a look at mapmyrun... I had done 2.32k which was pretty encouraging.. i think this spurred me on to go a bit faster and I was just off 4k with 5mins left of the run.

I carried on running after the 30mins were up and hit 5.07k in 32.43 mins.

I wanted to do in under 35mins and I am actually happy that its enough over the 30 mins that I am not kicking myself for missing it by a hair..

Also achieved my fastest average pace and fastest split for a km which I am chuffed about.

What to do on friday now?!
