My 1st 5k!

Sorry Laura I rebelled and ran my 1st 5k a week early. I listened to you but kept going until my ipod told me I'd made it to 5k. What I wasn't expecting was a sub 30 time - 4 seconds to spare!

Thanks to everyone on this forum for your support and inspiration. Thanks also to the lovely sea views which also keep me going and smiling.

I'm one happy purple -faced 46 year - old woman ☺

Thanks Viraniparvez. I'll be back at it Tuesday after work - still have week 9 to complete before I formally graduate

Thanks AncientMum. I think the gusty wind blew me along

Wow! That's really impressive. Looks like you'll be one of the few to graduate in 30 mins with a 5k tucked neatly in your belt too! Well done! :D

Sadly no ViaM but if I keep going and get some running shorts they should be slimmer and possibly browner by the summer
