Yay! Iโ€™ve Graduated!

Just completed graduation run ๐Ÿ˜€ i had to resort to treadmill because of slippy road conditions I would have liked to be outside but got lots more running to do in future!

I know this program is about being able to run for 30mins but I really wanted to run 5k so I carried on til I got to 5k and did it in 35 mins which I was pleased with!

Really enjoyed doing this and going to aim for 10K next.

Really enjoyed this forum and hearing about everyone elseโ€™s experiences and getting advice and encouragement. Its true runners are v nice people ๐Ÿ˜€

You will do Iโ€™m sure! Week 7 & 8 weโ€™re turning point for me because if you can run for 25 mins - 28 mins is not much more and then 30 mins is not much more than 28 mins! You will smash it! Good luck x

Congratulations. 5k in 35 mins too. Wow! I'm on week 7 and I'm hoping by April I can run 5k in 30 mins. I do 3k in 25 mins at the mo so I'm a tad slower than you lol!

I did the last run on treadmill I normally donโ€™t do that time! I think because u set speed on treadmill and itโ€™s all flat it makes it all slightly different. Found treadmill a bit boring tho so back to running outside when got rid of pesky snow! Good luck with your running!

Brilliant sure you will get back to it! I had to stop for a week around week 4 cos of toothache and was Ok sure you will be fine but looking at other advice on this forum you could look at repeating some runs. I havenโ€™t run this Wednesday but everything is clearing now so going out tonight. also hoping am not going struggle! I am doing my 1st park run this Saturday too.
