I did it!! Can't believe I ran (slowly) for a whole 5k without stopping or walking! Took 39 minutes but as I have onlyever managed to run for 31 previously I am feeling very proud. And what a rush of emotion when I finished - the tears really flowed - silly I know but just can't believe that in 11 weeks I have gone from being unable to run for 30 seconds to running 5k. Really was Couch to 5k and now I can get my Graduate badge - Yay!! My first ever 5k at 61 years old - I really have the bug now. Advice please on best way to increase pace rather than distance?
