Not a big deal to many, but it is to me!
I, like many others, was a bit disappointed when I worked out that doing C25K I would never be running 5k but running for 30 minutes (about 3.2km for me).
I graduated just after Christmas and have been doing regular 30 minute runs since. Wondering how I was ever going to get to 5km.
Then this morning, about 2km in, I just thought to myself, why not do it? Why not just carry on and run 5km, so that's exactly what I did!
For the first time in about 32 years I ran solidly for 5km. It took me 44 mins and 47 seconds!
I am one very happy plodder, and this feels much more of an achievement than graduating (although of course, that was a great stepping stone).
Onwards and upwards!!
