Ok so it was literally only just sub-30 minutes, at 29:59! And boy was it HARD. I'd had a really good, enjoyable run on Saturday where I decided to go for the 5k rather than the 30 minutes as I had been doing. Intent on doing the same again today, I set off on another new route where it was all flat but battling a strong sea breeze pretty much the whole time. Still, I put in an desperate extra spurt right at the end & somehow, miraculously, hit my 5k target, whoop whoop!
Happy with that, especially as I'd come straight from doing my free-weights induction at the gym 😮
