Couch to 5K

Graduation Day!!

It's taken 14 weeks instead of 9. 3 weeks out of action due to a bad knee, a week of recovery runs after that and another disturbed week when my little boy had an operation.

But...I've graduated!! :D

Finished week 9 this morning and with 3 new records on my Garmin. Longest run of 4.01Km, fastest KM in 6:36 and fastest mile in 11:(something - I can't remember lol).

I was really pleased to hit the 4Km mark. Having run 3.75Km on Tuesday it was a little goal to try and get to 4 today. Even more pleased because one again last night was a night of very little sleep thanks to a little boy who won't sleep for more than 2 hours at a time (love him and his brother to bits though).

Have got to say a big thanks to everyone on this site for all the support and encouragement. Especially in the early days when I crocked my knee. Special thanks to Belinda, useitorloseit and hydrogirl.

Next step is to build up to 5Km, and reduce my time, so that I feel up to entering a parkrun.

Now where is that exclusive, graduates only, members bar?
