Well he had no excuse regarding the graduation present - he wants me to run with him - he does half marathons and marathons though so wayyyyyy in the distance! But aiming for a 10k dosent seem as daunting now!! Half way there!

thank you! And yes go drop them hints :)

Good luck with training for your 10k :)

Hi Net68, thank you! I think it's helped having a partner who is a runner, and has pushed me (not too much) but theres definately been a competitve streak in our house! thanks once again! :)

Congratulations and well done - brilliant time! If you haven't been yet, sign up with your local parkrun, if nothing else it will keep you running while you plan your 10k training.

Let us know how you get on - I find them a great way to start the weekend, all that positivity and encouragement. I warn you now, though, they can quickly become addictive !

Wow! Well done.. 5K in under 30 minutes, a graduation run *AND* a shiny new Garmin! And to top it off, any entry in a 10K!?

You're awesome! Congratulations!

PS. You've got loads of time to get to 10K... my advice is 2x30 minute runs a week and then a longer run on the weekend (start slowly... 5.5K, then 6K, etc...) - and taper back every 4th week (ie. one week a month just do 3x30 mins or 2x30 and a 5K Parkrun)... You have loads of time to get to 10K and you'll blitz it if you're slow and careful!

Thanks Aussiegtc!

I've been entered into a 10k yule yomp in december, so it's not just a normal 10k its a muddy one! but im excited either way, my trail shoes have done me proud so far..... it's exciting. Ive also entered into the North Manchester Run in May next year - it's a 10k ive always watched on TV - well now im bloody doing it :):)

I like that idea - the 2 x 30 min runs and then a longer run, thats what my partner suggested - i was looking at the apps for the 10k training but they look like they push you quite quick, so im going to do as you've suggested!

Going to do a couple more weeks of just running for 30 mins for now - call it a rest period! ha ha.

Love my shiny new toy - may take me a week to work out how to use it though!
