I just completed my first ever 5K run and it feels amazing! I'm only on W6R3, so I was only meant to be running for 25 minutes, but for the first time I took my phone out with me and used an app that told me how far I'd gone, and by the end of the podcast I felt fine, so I couldn't help but push myself for another five minutes. I ended up sprinting the final 30 seconds to finish in under 30 mins (just!). This programme is truly incredible. In Week 1 I was struggling with one-minute runs!
I know the general advice is to stick to the programme (and that advice has served me very well up till now), but seeing as I felt comfortable with the full 5K today, is there any reason why I shouldn't just carry on doing 5K runs from now on?
