Thank you and I ran 5K!!

Thank you to all the lovely people who replied to me earlier in the week, I was frustrated about not getting close to 5K after graduating. I was given some lovely encouragement and advice :)

I went out for an early run this morning along the seafront. Conditions were perfect, calm and still, no wind for a change! I just kept running and I covered 5K! So happy.

37.17 minutes (mostly on the flat in no wind). It can be done (and hopefully I’ll do it again!). I have the parkrun in my sights now.

Thanks everyone :)

Great milestone to achieve - especially beside the sea (just a bit of jealousy there - I love the sea - don't get to see it much these days at all. :( )

Do take the time to celebrate your achievement - don't ever take milestones for granted!!! You worked hard for it so you have to mark the occasion!!

Thank you ☺️ I do feel privileged to be able to run by the sea and it can be a lovely distraction from aching knees!
