Graduation Day


So I officially graduated today, although I’ve been running 5k for the last week or so (got carried away on W8R2 and just kept going). Hard to believe that just 9 weeks ago I could barely run for a minute! Ran my personal best 5k today too - 32:44. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who posts on here as it has been a great help and source of inspiration. And to anyone starting out, YOU CAN DO THIS!!

Yay!! Huge congratulations! 🌟And I’m no expert on times but that looks like a very good one 👍

Cheers! Aiming to bring it down to 30 mins but I’m sure that will come in time!
