W9 completed

After the last attempt I just wanted to get round. I have been out to Kent today and was pretty stiff when I got back, so left it for a while before getting my gear on. I dug out my old knee support, I don't think I really needed it but put it on as a just in case measure. I wanted about a 7 minute pace and the first KM ping up at 6:58 which was about spot on. I kept to about that all the way, started to puff a bit towards the end but not too much drama. That's it then graduation and Brexit on the same day, at least I won't be able to forget the date.

  • Hey - look at the wonderful 'graduate' badge - you deserved it! What a pace as well!

  • Thanks for all the kind words and the support over the last few months, I don't think I could have stayed the course with out this forum. I have my first run with other people (I won't call it a race, as I'm going to just try stay at my pace), on Sunday. I'm hoping for 35 minutes for the 5k but that depends on the terrain

  • Love the shiny new badge-well done, and amazing pace too for a "just wanted to get round" kinda run! Good luck in your first race :)

  • That's just my natural pace, I guess being tall I have a long stride.
