Well, I have been running every other morning since graduating on 9th March. Usually I try to run 5k, sometimes I do a bit less if I have a busy day ahead. This morning I did not feel up to running at all but told myself- just 3k is better than nothing. Trouble is the competitive spirit kicks in and I knew from my Endomondo friend that I was making quite good time. So at 4k I decided to go for it and knocked 20 seconds off my previous PB- 5k in 29 minutes 55s! If someone had told me on 16th Jan when I started this programme that I would be running for 5k in less than 30 minutes I would have laughed! For all those of you embarking on the plan, or part way through , good luck.. If I can do it anyone can!
5k in under 30 mins- just!: Well, I have been... - Couch to 5K
