Managed my first 5k in a fraction under 37 min's...runkeeper kept good track this time (none of the usual wandering off piste that it does & I've measured it on a map, so I believe it for a change, so I'll keep that one!!) Ran mostly in the woods, with a nice stretch of tarmac to finish.
I used the Jeff Galloway style run/walk/run method (my second outing this way with 2 mins 30 secs running : 1 min walking intervals) & completed in about the predicted time for me, based on my previous best run all the way, which was a fairly level road run.
Difference is I really felt I could have run for longer than the extra .3k I managed, but didn't have time (bloomin' work) & not going to make the mistake of pushing too hard again! Also, I don't feel like I cheated ralking it (you know run-walking...ralking - less of a mouthful) and much less like an exhausted snail!
D'ya know...I really like this running thing
