Well thats 9-1 done. Bought a used Garmin forerunner 10 off old "fleabay" and it reckons it took me 39 min to do 5k. After a bit of a stretch and warm up I ran through the first 5 min walk and a bit of the cool down... Though I did do a full final walk. Watch seems pretty good... But I was tending to keep looking at it as I went. The "plan", such as it is, is to do my second park run as 9-2 on Saturday morning and then finish C25K on Monday when I reach the grand old age of 51... My darling wife has promised to buy me a graduation t shirt if I do it so fingers crossed.
Regards to all of you out there in C25K land.
