I'm feeling very chuffed with myself - I did it in 38 minutes!! I wanted to do my Week 8 run 1 today, so I ran for 28 minutes which was hard for the last 3 minutes and then I really had to walk. I think if I'd have been by myself I would have just called it a day, but with so many people around, and 2 very special friends sticking with me, I walked faster than I would normally after running, and then run for the final 3-4 minutes (need to check my Garmin ) and had a final sprint over the winning line before the clock started it's next minute.
I'm not quite sure how accurate the 5k was, as my garmin says it was slightly under, although we were under trees at some points. But who cares! I've had my longest run too today, and now the thought of doing a Park Run is getting to be more like it really could happen.
It was really nice running somewhere I've never run before, and had no idea where I was going. So I think I need to start thinking about different routes to run.
Well done to anyone else who did Race 4 Life today too!
