W9R3 - amazing last run!

I did it, I’ve run the last week. Not only that but suddenly was able to do 5K in 30mins! My running buddy & I decided to run a flatter route to see if it made a difference time-wise. Normally our cross country routes are a bit hilly, but pretty all the same, distance in 30mins is 4.5K. So flatter route (streets) made a big difference, but we’re returning to the nicer routes. I have found the support & encouragement on this forum amazing, without which the programme could have been harder 😊

Brilliant, well done on the 5k too. I'm nowhere near that, but love the fact that I can now do 30 mins. Go get you nice shiny graduation badge x

Thank you! Try running on a flatter route it might help you go further in 30mins.

I was and only managed 4k . Mind you I was very happy with that. 5k is the next target to aim for.

Ha ha, it was just luck. We just decided to run on the flat to see if it made a difference. Believe me from 4.5 to 5K my legs were screaming ‘stop’ but my brain said ‘you haven’t done 30mins’.

You’re right it is an adventure! I’m going to run 5K three times a week and not worry about the time. After a Fun Run on 8th July I’m going to follow Ju Ju’s 10k Plan. Aiming for 10K on 14th October. I’ll certainly keep posting and hopefully support & encourage others 👍

Well done on completing course and your speed. Nowhere near that yet. Took my new graduation trainers out for their first run today. Only 3k cos I didn’t want blisters. Thinking just thinking of park run at Memorial Park Saturday

Reply

Ooh new trainers...go for that Park Run!!!

Do you know Helen from your Runs with Kate?

I’m going to do the Improvers next Monday, I’ll contact Kate to let her know she’s got two extras.

Park Run at some point on my radar too 🏃‍♀️

Reply

I know two Helens from Kate’s couch to 5k and her improvers. I don’t do Monday improvers as that’s my yoga time

Reply

The Helen I know is very tall and graduated beginning of June I think?
