No idea how! 4th consolidation run, didnโ€™t plan to try for 5k but my my legs just kept going. I thought I might make it to 4.5 but then it seemed rude to stop! 5k in 37.36 minutes. Iโ€™m so chuffed! It was so unexpected, not got further than 4.2k with a struggle until now. It feels even better than graduating did. Think the cooler weather really helped. Canโ€™t believe it. ๐Ÿ˜„

Thank you Ang! It was very unexpected! I did choose a flat route which helped ๐Ÿ˜

It makes such a big difference, not dripping all over the floorboards quite so much when I get home ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ˜‚

Fantastic! My runs have definetly been better with this cooler weather.

Agreed! So much nicer to run in this ๐Ÿ˜Š

Long may it continue or Iโ€™m going to have to start running at 3am!! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Well Done owmeknees (I just love that name). Another milestone met. Are you heading for 10k with ju-ju now? ๐Ÿ‘

Thank you! Hmm ๐Ÿค” Do you know what, itโ€™s taken me nearly 6 months to get this far, Iโ€™m in no rush. Iโ€™m keeping my options open. Will continue to consolidate for a few weeks and then see how I feel. My knees still like a good whinge from time to time and I donโ€™t think theyโ€™re ready for 10k just yet ๐Ÿ˜‚

No, I have just read the incredible journey you have been on. You should be so proud to have reached the 5k. That is my next target having been spending a couple of weeks on the IC.
