1st of hopefully many :)

Well that's my first ever fun run completed only 3k and took me 22 minutes but with my dear friend by my side every step of the way. We did it (she may have run a half marathon last week in just two hours) . So come on everyone if the fat old girl at the back can do it so can you xx my amazing husband who started the c25k with me 7 weeks ago did it in just 12mins 59 seconds ...blew me away... Well done old chap so proud of you xxx

At the back? I suggest not. At that pace you should be on for about 35 mins for 5k. Very respectable. Well done. Main thing is was the funrun fun and finished with a smile?

Wow thank you I didn't realise that I am no where near ready for 5k yet but I will :)


Ps yes finished with a smile no breath left in me but a huge smile lol :D


When you get to 25 min running (w8?) then a 5k park run using the 5 min warm up, 25 min run and 5 min warm down should be possible. It makes a nice change but dont overdo it.
