Week 9 run 1, turned in to 5K best ever run!!!

Just got in and I'm stoked, started off thinking keep it slow don't push it then 1Km comes up still felling good av pace 6 20 something?? What!! Again try and slow it down as K 2 is the hardest one gulping in the air , bong 2Km av pace 6:12, slow down !!! but every K comes up 6:20 or there about. Got to the end of the 30 minutes and I'm thinking 5 K is just a few hundred metres I got to do this. My first 5K 31:37 average pace 6:17. If you had told me 9 weeks ago I would complete 5K in just over half an hour I would have laughed in your face but I have just done it!!!!!

  • Well done that's amazing. Goes to show this programme works. You are inspiring in a couple of weeks i hope that's me saying the same πŸŽ‰πŸŽ†πŸŽŠ

  • Great stuff!

  • Well done plop -great stuff :)

  • Nicely done plop.

    Make sure you give those legs a really good massage though - that was a lot of work for them :-). I am not sure of your regular pace but if that was significantly different then please don't try and repeat that for run 2 as that is the way of the IC :-). Graduation is only round the corner now and an injury would be awful.

    Lovely pace though!

  • Wow, that's good on your first outing of W9. I am on average 1minute slower than you and as a consequence not getting to 5k but know I will eventually. Well done and keep at it but don't overdo it.😊

  • Thanks folks for your comments, I will try to slow down on the next one. Perhaps some different music might help.

  • Amazing!

  • Plop, that's brilliant !

    Well done to you, your Graduation run awaits ! :-) xxx

  • Great Job plop!!

  • Great stuff..great pace... keep it steady until you are over that finishing line. i agree with yatesco ... IC at this point..not good! :)

  • Fabulous!!!

  • Well done Plop. Very impressive!

  • Well done plop!! First 5k and graduation in sight!!

  • Wow, first 5k!!! Look forward to that feeling one day πŸ˜€ Enjoy the rest now!
