Couch to 5K

5k...but slower

Again a super morning and decided to aim for 30mins but try and increase pace. Was enjoying the run and felt good so doubled back on a section and kept running. Was pleasantly surprised to look at RK and see that I had run for over 40mins with a total of 5.2k. Reluctantly I had to stop running and start the cool down walk. After comparing the split for 5k with my first 5k on Saturday was surprised to see that I had actually been about 1 minute slower, but unlike the other run when I nearly crawled home felt I could have gone on. Anyway, whatever the distance or time it was great being out.

The best part is I have put a skirt on that for a long time I could not fasten the top button, it now swivels on my waist.

Hope everyone enjoys there run today.

Sounds like you really enjoyed it and are now fitter and slimmer. What more can a girl ask for. I'm going to save "skirt trying on" until, like you, I become a graduate which will hopefully be in a couple of weeks time.


Well done! The weight does come off, particularly round the waist, which is not surprising I don't suppose. Good though ey!

I was out walking the dog this morning and it was positively balmy!


Its lovely when you get a run like that!! :) With the extra bonus of clothes fitting better. I am ashamed to say it i have so many clothes that I have dragged 6000miles away from their home in UK to SAM. The aim of the game was to fit into them with room - not really happened just yet but i have decided to knuckle down this week (I might have said that a few weeks ago too) but this week is different.
