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.
