Now that I have my shiny new graduation badge?
Chose the canal for my graduation run this morning. Frosty and bright but a few mist patches made it a lovely peaceful run.
I felt the most settled more quickly than on any other run. Decided to leave Laura behind today (sorry Laura) and just use run keeper and my own tunes. My first 1k was in about 4.30! Way too fast but I didn't feel fast. Made a conscious effort to slow the pace so as not to burn out. Not sure how I ended up at that pace in the first place!
As runkeeper gave me updates at each km I realised a 30 min 5k was definitely a possibility. I decided to run until I reached 5k just to see how close I was. The answer? Really close!
I can't believe I'm now able to run for 30 mins non stop. 9 weeks ago I was begging Laura to end the 60 seconds!
This really is an amazing programme and the support on this forum is fantastic.
Now to plan my next steps in my running journey and start a new challenge I think ... Maybe planking or the 100 push up challenge 😉
