Yeahhh today at 7.00am I became a graduate of 5K officially.
From week 8 I was finding this quite difficult and to be honest 30 minutes is still knackering BUT no one said it was going to be easy and for me I CAN RUN (PLOD) FOR 30 MINUTES WITHOUT STOPPING!!!
I had to do 4 runs in week 9 as on run 2 my legs just stopped working at 26 minutes, it was really strange as the brain was not telling the legs to stop (not that I was aware of), just suddenly I had stopped and could not get restarted.
Anyway that's all old history and now I look forward to running what distance/length of time I feel I can achieve / enjoy on the day.
Thank you all to this fab forum, this has been the best part of the programme!
