W6 r1

Wow! Feeling brilliant, managed to push myself done 4 and 1/2 miles on this run and it was my fastest time new PB. Decided I was going to go for it today with a few days off last week due to b day and hospital with my mum. Loved it was so eager this morning was scratching to go running yesterday but kept my energy up throughout super chuffed. Bring on normal running and run two for the week.

  • 4 and a 1/2 MILES in less than half an hour? Cooo, I doff my hat to you. Well done! I can't even do that in my dreams.... :D

  • Thank you :) so chuffed just was feeling good and up for it so thought why not! ☺

  • .. what hope for me then :)

  • We'll round up the stragglers. Or the sheep. Or something.

  • Indeed :)

  • Well done emskihammer, but don't you mean you completed 4.5 KM in 30 minutes? There are graduates out there who are still struggling to do 5 mile runs! :o

    Anyway, all the best with your next run. You're doing great! :)

  • Defiantly miles can't figure out km.

  • Hmmm... I would check your calculation device (or app) if I were you! ;)

  • I use run keeper. It does include an extra five minute run to / from the canal I run down. But none the less I'm pleased with it. thought this site was meant to encourage people to express how there runs went. Maybe I got the site wrong.

  • Sorry I spoke. (I shall not bother you ever again). :(

  • The site does encourage I wondered the same as Lee as I guess we're at similar stages ,I start week 6 tomorrow , and often compare myself to where others are at( which is the wrong thing I guess ) I for eg covered just over 2.5 k in my 20 min run last week , so your a flyer well done keep posting

  • That is a great pace if you covered 4.5 miles in the 35 minutes of the W6R1 workout, coming out at 7.47 minutes per mile. That pace is definitely achievable, so we have no reason to disbelieve you, but Lee's questioning comes about from the fact that it is much faster than many new runners on this forum can manage. You should certainly be proud but you need to realise that learning to become a competent runner is much more than trying to get a new PB on each run and that stamina builds more efficiently from slower runs.

    That said, I was just like you at this stage of C25k, pushing myself hard. My fastest ever mile was during my parkrun PB and came out at 7.49, two years after completing C25k and there is no way I could maintain that for 4.5 miles. However, I do suspect that I am a few years your senior.

    Keep running, keep smiling.
