So a few of you know I was running my first park run today as my penultimate C25k run. I did it!!!

5k in 36.55 mins and I ran all of it!! I’m so pleased I managed it. It was hot and there were 2 small hills. Knackered now but soooo proud of myself. Off to collapse in a heap.

Enjoy your runs everyone. 😎

Fanatasic! So glad you enjoyed it :-)

Did my second one this morning for my Week 8 Run 1 - walked the first 5 mins but ran across the finish line today.

Well Done for running all of it - that's my goal for next week x

Well done Ripcurlrana71. I know what you mean, I felt exactly the same at the end of my first one last week. But it’s a real buzz to know that you can do it isn’t it?!

Well done you! Quite something to be achieving a completed park run just as you are nearing the end of your C25K! Do hope that your last run of week 9 goes well.
