W9R3 done! Wahoo!

Yay! Graduation run complete! Had planned out a 5k route beforehand and just went for it. Was feeling ok at 30 mins and had done about 3.7k so decided to just keep going and see how long it took. Legs started going a bit wobbly at about 38mins but only had 0.5k to go. Finally made it to 5k in 41.34! So happy! On Friday I ran my fastest 1k split and today I ran my furthest distance, ever! I think I am now a graduate!

  • Good luck with your last few runs before graduation. I'll be keeping an eye out for your run reports. Next is to work on increasing speed a little bit, to get a little closer to the 30 min mark! Just committing to 3 runs a week is going to be the first challenge.
