So I graduated last year and since then have been 'plodding' (or shuffling as Chris Evans says!) 4K and just about making it in around 30 minutes. 5 weeks ago I signed up for a novice runners course with local club to try and improve. I've just tried my first ever 5k on my own -37 minutes 43seconds. Very pleased with myself. Also including warm up and cool down nearly the exact length of Tom hanks on desert island discs podcast.
If I can do this anyone can...keep running!!
