Its taken a while due to injury and illness, but after 5 and a half months today I finally graduated. Totally amazed that I have finally got here.
I tried a new route today, which was more up-and-downy than my usual routes - so it was a hard run, and half way round I was really cursing myself for not having used my usual completely flat route, but I had a real glow or achievement (or was that just sweat) when I managed to complete it.
I'm nowhere close to 5k - 3.6k last Monday has been my longest so far - but I'm doing jantastic. Target for February is to get to 4k. Target for March may be to get to 5k - we'll see!
