I RAN 5K! I RAN 5K! Took me 36 minutes mind, but I don't care. And in the frost, too! Feels like a major achievement :)

Even my feet warmed up in the the end. And I got to hang out with the robins and leave my footprints in the frosty grass... saw the sun dazzling off the frosty leaves as it began to melt, and felt at one with the world.

A fair bit of my run is up hill- at least two thirds. So I reckon if it was on the flat or treadmill 5k in 30 minutes would be in the bag.

I loved it! Running. It rules! Never ever thought I'd be saying that, in a million years. But it does. :)

  • Wahay! ๐Ÿ˜Š Well done!

    Running on frosty mornings in slippery conditions is tricky. it makes me nervous ! we just have to go very carefully and just take our time โ˜บ

  • Well done, that's a fantastic achievement. It was so lovely out there this morning too. :-)

  • Well done! But why does distance and time matter so much at the moment? It doesn't!

    Just take it slow & steady for the time being, don't push it too much.. try and just carry on naturally through graduation and try and keep to constant running 3 times a week and the time will come down and the weight will come off..as you go on toward 5k..๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Well done Snorkmaidenuk ๐Ÿ˜Š.

    A great run on a frosty sunny morning. xx

  • Amazing, well done!! What a lovely idyllic run. You sound like you're beaming and you deserve to be!

  • Well done, what a brilliant graduation run!

  • Well done - inspiring:)

    In hillwalking there is a "rule" which basically says for every 10 ms of ascent you add 1 minute, on top of your base time. So yes enjoy your moment and relish what a great additional achievement it is:).

  • Marvellous!

  • Very well done. And in case you're wondering, 36minutes for 5k is a GOOD time and it IS an achievement!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
