Last Run - Graduation time.


A few days back i put out a request for ideas for my graduation run.

So after some interesting advice.... I went out "naked". No Laura on the app, no music, no headphones. Just me, my watch and the sound of heavy breathing!

6K & 36 min later (and several long inclines) - i have graduated!

Prior to starting the app i had not run for around 28 years - thought it would be tough to complete, but i loved going out for my run (even in this hot weather).

I'm hooked on running, i'm proud to say that i am a runner & even more - inspired by all those that post about the good & bad moments on their own personal journey!

So as promised in my previous post - the finish photo....

Glad to see you make it crey - great news and nice job!

Well done! I’m on week 4 run 3 which I’ll complete tonight with a dog and puppy in tow - it’s amazing how quickly you improve - I doubt I’ll manage 6k in 35 minutes but I’ll be proud just to complete it 😊

Just keep putting one foot in front of the other!

As for the time - i have found i have a natural pace (6.00 to 6.20 min per km) which happens to be a bit quick at the moment for longer distances.

However i WILL have to slow myself down to get to 10K.

DO feel proud! It is an amazing thing to get out and run. Enjoy the rest of the weeks, its tough but very achievable.

Thank you - I am enjoying it but it’s getting that bit harder - keep up the good work, glad you’re enjoying it and hope you manage to sort out your timings to reach 10k - I’m not sure If I’ll be an all weather runner though but I’m hoping the bug bites and I’ll manage all seasons.




Well done 👏👏👏
