Finally ran 5k!

Yesterday while on holiday in the heat of the French sun I finally ran 5k! Didn't set out to do it but was running on a straight (if undulating ) road through a forest in rural Brittany and realised I had the stamina to carry on and run the last bit I had planned as my cool down walk - and I did. 3,2 miles achieved in 39 minutes 40 secs. Not fast but my first ever 5 k a few weeks after graduation and I am dead proud of it!! Feel a fully fledged couch to 5ker now and in March when I started I struggled to run the one minute sessions! Look at me now running 5k on my holidays and loving it!

And yes a celebratory Breton cidre was had after!!
