Hi everyone. I have been running for almost a year now, and like you guys my goal was to get to week nine and run for 30 mins or 5k. I was slow so knew the 30 mins would come first. Although on week 1 just a minute was an achievement. Since completing the programme last September I ran my first 5k race in 38 minutes in October. So my challenge has always been to get the elusive 5k in 30 mins. I then tried Parkrun and have been hooked ever since, running and volunteering at my local Parkrun in Bournemouth, and slowly slowly eating away at that time until 2 weeks ago I was down to 31.04. So preservering has definately been key. Last week I volunteered and was a timekeeper which was surprisingly fun. So yesterday with my newly brought running shoes I was back again. New time 30.04 , my question is can I now say I can run 5k in 30 minutes ? Or should I be under 30 minutes ???
