Couch to 5K

W8R3 - RFL!

W8R3 - RFL!

As promised a snapshot of us at the end of today's RFL (as you can see daughter is better at taking selfies than me!), the medals just made it into the bottom right of the photo. We completed it in 40 minutes, and ran all the way! Feeling really pleased as we have now completed a 5k run, and have had a real boost to our confidence. Looking forward to week 9 👍😀

Well done. The race tactic conversation obviously worked :-)

Yes it did! We worked really hard to make it 'our' race, and not get caught up with what others were doing. Kept a steady pace at the beginning, upped it towards the end and had a sprint finish!
