Kicked off the afternoon with a 2k family fun run with medals the lure for my children. Despite a bit of rain, their faces as they sprinted the final bit with all those waiting to do a 10k cheering them on were all smiles.
Ended the afternoon with my final run of week 9 in beautiful sunshine. After 30 minutes I'd run about 4.5 k so I kept running and ran 5k in 36 minutes. I was really pleased though having now looked at race results I know that's not brilliant.... (For me it is!) Got a 5k in May so my aim will be to improve on that if possible. Not sure how I'll be able to as don't think I can go any faster but at least I know I can run 5k! No cheers for me as I completed the distance but I did get hugs from my children - and I did get a medal for the 2k this morning!!
Really glad I started this - couldn't have run the 2k with my children if I hadn't... That, for me, is the whole point of having done this and why I'll keep running!
