I graduated a month ago now. I am firmly in the "slow and steady" camp so I managed 3.3K in my thirty minutes. I have been stretching out the time, so this morning I downloaded a 45 minute podcast, (Radio 4 afternoon drama, not sure what that says about me), and set off in the beautiful if flippin' cold sunshine. When I got to the end of my podcast, I realised that I was only 250m off my 5K, so I went for it! So I have run my first 5K in 46 minutes, and I am really pleased with myself. I think I will consolidate at that distance for a few weeks before deciding what to do next.
