Ran 5K for the first time ever!!! :)

Ok so I'm on W8R2, so was slightly naughty but I felt good so carried on and managed 5K for the first time ever! Managed it in 39 minutes, definitely not the fastest but I can work on that :)

Haha yes I want to try a park run! I'm not very good at running first thing in the morning so I'm going to work up to a park run for April.

Well done Lindz, 5k in week 8! You've cracked it. Congratulations and enjoy the next week and a half!

Lol. It's not naughty. I did the same on run 3 week 8. I'm sure others did extra running when feeling good. It's great to do that first 5K. Keep going and enjoy.

Oh it's so hard to resist that one isn't it lol :D But I think it gives you a tremendous boost to know that you can do it, so well done you. Naughty but nice ;)

Wow, well done! I did W8R2 today too and ended up doing 30 minutes but only managed 3.8km. I know it's not about speed or distance but I think we are all naturally competitive and want to see the stats improve :)

That's a good time! You'd get 5K done 40-45 min at that time! :) Well done to you too, it's so addictive and tempting to do more than what Laura says! ;)
