W9 begins..... and my first 5K!!!

Just back with a glow on after my first run of week 9. It felt almost comfortable today, and I still had legs when Laura said stop, so I was naughty and carried on for another five minutes (no twinges or pains or strains anywhere).

I JUST RAN 5K!!!!!!!

Even a week ago, I thought I'd graduate ok, but was convinced I'd have to work after week 9 on getting up to the magic 5!

Lovely morning for it, too - spring seems to have sprung :)

  • Isn't that a great feeling? You feel as if you have conquered the world. Congragulations.

  • I had it in my mind that I'd have a go at completing 5K this week, but thought it would be my last run on Friday when I tried. Chuffed that I managed it today without much drama!

  • Good! You're on it now Steve and going for the line. You'll finish in fine style.

    5k is fab! Park runs and C25k+ to look forward to. Zippy di doo dah

    I dare hardly mention 10 k. Oops, sorry

  • *grin*


    I'm still walking on air - my legs feel slightly tired but otherwise fine. I'll definitely be thinking about a Park Run soon. 5K seemed a long way off just a week ago!

  • Yay!! Congratulations Steve :)

    Only a couple more runs until you've finished the program too.

    What a high to start the week on!

  • Thanks, Sarah. I seem to have arrived at this point really suddenly!

  • Well done Steve. 😊
