I did it, I did it! Week 9, run 3 completed!

I... did it.

Plotted out a 5k route on mapmyrun. Started it with the idea that I'd run the thirty minutes, and keep going if I wanted to to get as close to 5k as I could.

And I did it.

I'm in shock, but very happy. Am I really a runner now?

:)

As you can see, my iPhone photography skills are top notch.

Excellent running!

Graduated, and in style too! Great stuff.

Make sure you have a plan to build on that great foundation - you're a real runner now - keep it up!

Happy running!

Thank you! I'm a bit calmer now. Have renamed North Meadow as "The Leg Killer" and I am trying to stop giggling childishly at the name of the field I completed the run in (as I keep telling myself, there's nothing wrong with darting around Bailiff's Piece).

And I don't have to listen to "You and Julie." Ever. Again.

Well done well done!! But OH I know just how you feel about 'You and Julie'😱😱 - and the one which really drove me mad was a song a few weeks back which had the words ' I've got both feet on the ground' or something...that always seemed to crop up just as I was starting to flag and I had to make myself ignore it!

Thanks everyone. :) Have had a weekend off and now looking forward to getting out there and running again tomorrow. First day with a new playlist too. I think I'll miss Laura, so I haven't quite got around to deleting the podcasts from my phone yet.
