1st post graduate run

So my first post graduate run was my first ever 5k race and... I did it! I was only running about 4k in 30 minutes in my last run with Laura, and it took me about 39 mins to do the 5k - and I walked some of the last 1k - but I did it!

This is such a great programme. There is no way I would have even contemplated doing this otherwise.

I just need to make sure I keep it up now...!

Well done but donโ€™t try to go too far too fast. Check out the post grad pinned post if you havenโ€™t been sent it already. 3 weeks consolidation is recommended to avoid injuries. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Well done, Clare!! :) Congratulations for finishing your first 5k race!! :) My race is tomorrow and I'm so nervous! I planned that I'll need 35 minutes for the 5 kms ... so you did a really good job with your 39 minutes! But for me the time is not important ... I just want to finish because tomorrow we will have about 30 degrees here, omg!!
