Just done my first run since graduating 😃😃 decided to try and up my pace as I'm no fast runner 😉😉😉 and I managed 4.25 km in 33.28 mins.......so pritty chuffed 😃😃
First post grad run 😃: Just done my first run... - Couch to 5K
Sounds like a good run!
Speed is not terribly important, but if you do want to work on increasing it, then a good way is to use one run a week for intervals, or fartlek runs - it's amazing what pushing your heart rate up for short periods will do for both speed and stamina. But take it gently - many small increments are always better than one big one.
Keep it up!
Brill pace Dawn! Going to measure my 30 mins thurs and then build up to a 5k proper (miles off I'm sure!!) 😊x
Was really funny running without Laura......didn't feel like I had anything to achieve ....so decided to try and up my pace and get to 5k 😃😃 x
Will try being Laura less thurs. This run keeper thing on my phone says when you pass each 5 mins I think. Do you have a 5k planned Dawn? X
well seems like it is going well still
Well done - the chuffedness is the best bit!
That's great! I'm roughly in the same range as you. Just trying to figure out a plan now to get to 5k! Good luck with yours!
