Well... Had an amazing Graduation 5k but went out today and it was a disaster! I run for 0.7 of a mile, every step hurt like hell! Walked until I was a mile out and restarted Map my run... I did run the 1 mile back in 11.32mins which is brilliant but to be honest I didn't feel great at the before I left the house! Not all bad.. I did something instead of just sitting on my butt! And my dog enjoyed herself!
1st run after Graduation: Well... Had an amazing... - Couch to 5K
Hurrah! First run as a graduate. To be honest my first post-grad run was a total disaster. Went too fast, only lasted 15 mins & thought I was going to pass out! Ho-hum, things have got better since. Keep going - you're doing great xx
congratulations on your graduation, sorry i must have missed your post, but looked at it just now! Well done to you. I think the first post grad run is filled with anticipation, but don't worry you'll soon be back in your stride, you can't always be 100% especially if you're feeling not so good. Glad the dog had fun, and you still got out and put in the effort
Yay well done. You are now officially a graduate. Often people get injured after they graduate as they keep going out to fast (not likely for me), so do look after your legs and don't push yourself too hard.
Yes - this is my first post Graduate week - and things have not been good. I tried the SPEED post -graduate podcast this morning and it was a disaster -- but I am blaming it on Lauras music and here very slow cadence rate.
I have been running non-stop over the past several weeks ( as we do with the later stages of C25K) - but this week I have done a run/walk over 6 klms easily as I am now doing training to take me up to 16 Klms - and I thought I would try to improve" my 5K running by doing some fast intervals -- but maybe the two things don't mix??
I'm doing parkrun again on Sat and the only reason I wasn't last is because one of the regular runners bought her daughter to run/walk the course with her! I really want to work on my speed but I'm nervous!
