Post grad run 2. Gremlins be banished- I can run 4K!

Well I can honestly say that since starting the C25K , this morning was the first time that I just didn’t want to run. The gremlins were there in the bedroom when I woke up and they joined me in the car and had multiplied by the time I started to run.

After the high of graduating I think I was feeling a bit adrift- not quite ready for the bridge to 10K - (although ju ju’s plan looks exciting I think it’s something for the future) -but wanting to progress.

As always- reading everyone’s posts on here actually made me determined to keep going and so I put on a podcast and the MapMyRun app and left the gremlins behind somewhere around 1K. And guess what- just planning on running for 30 minutes, when I got there I carried on and ran 4 km!

Still 🐌like I think at 39.05 but a slightly faster 🐌 and covering more distance so that’s my next challenge. 1x 3k run, 1x 3.5 k run and 1x4 k run a week and gradually build up until I can do 5k in 30 mins. To quote Oldfloss- slow and steady does it 👍🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️😊
