Graduated! Still a lot to learn

Graduated! Still a lot to learn

So I completed week 9 run 3 last night. In 30 degrees!!!

I set off at what I thought was a reasonable pace but the last part I just started to crumble in the heat and slowed right down. I was convinced it would be a very short run due to how slow I was finishing. Map my run gave me a nice surprise at the end though.

Now I have finished c25k I think I will use the voice feedback on map my run so I can run with a better overall pace!

Oh well. Main thing is. I did it!!!

  • Wow! A perfect score! That's so fast especially in this heat so a huge well done and congratulations to you. What are your plans next?

  • Not sure what to do next.

    Should I keep running 30 mins for now and see if I can improve on distance or should I keep running 5km and see if I can improve on time?

    I think I'm tempted to stick with 30 minutes for the next few weeks and see how it goes.

  • Many Congratulations to you David !

    Blimey that is a speedy pace , even more impressive in this weather . Well done to you !

    I would carry on doing the 30 minutes 3 times a week for the time being , just to get you used to running for 30 minutes at a time .

    Well done again xxx

  • Thank you!

    Ok, 30 minute runs for a few weeks then I will reassess I think.

    Still can't get my head round ME running for 30 minutes 3 times a week. Madness! What an achievement!

  • It is a brilliant achievement David , and one you should be very proud of !

  • Listen to the wise ones... :) Stick at the thirty mins.. or less if you feel like it :) Run for pleasure, run for joy, run for the sheer, because you can, of it.. then start the next phase of your next running journey :)
