Graduated 27 runs later

Never thought I would be able to run 5k and just before my 41st birthday....haven't lost any weight but feel and look a lot better....just need to keep on running now....my parents still don't believe me back in Wales..'you were never a runner as a child' they said...but that was a long time ago..I can now happily say I am a RUNNER ๐Ÿ‘

Not sure how I managed it, my 2 runs before of week 9 I did 4.2km in 30mins, I had 3 days rest then before my final run and went it...after 10 mins my headphone batteries run out, so my first run with no "coaching" so just kept on running the same course as before but with no headphones, I checked my phones towards the end and saw I only had 2 mins to go and was not far off 5k so just went for it....
