ok, so last week I graduated as Laura said, ie I ran for 30 minutes (actually longer). however, as the title of the course says 5k and I had run just under. So, 5k is what I aimed for this weekend, and did it yesterday, in just under 44 minutes. still amazed this is how far I've come. the next challenge is to up the pace a little, then head for 10k local run next summer.

  • You right there that describes me exactly before this programme!! So glad I started it! This forum is amazing such great support😊x

  • Well done! That's brilliant! I graduated not having managed 5k but going out this morning with my husband running our local Parkrun route to see if I can extend my time and distance a bit and maybe, just maybe, manage 5k. I've been promised brunch in the rather nice cafe there if I do it...
