At about the 20 second mark, after starting out this morning, I thought I would never make the entire time. My legs lagged and I was tired. After about the first mile in, about 12:45/mi pace, it became less arduous. I kept going past my scheduled 25 and completed my first 5K in about 38 minutes. I know I went farther than I should have, but am over the moon. Back to my regularly scheduled programming on Saturday for W7R3!
Must.keep.going. W7R2: At about the 20 second... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
That’s a great run. Sounds like you got in the zone after the first mile. Well done. Only 7 more runs until graduation 👏👏
Great job. Yes, you got that 5k, nothing to prove now, good decision getting back to the programme.
Enjoy closing this out.
Thank you! I am excited to graduate and move on to the 10K, then HM! And watching you get that marathon!
Hehe... well you may beat me to marathon! I’m not planning on a formal 10k, but I have found a HM that also involves drinking wine, so that will be good training!
That sounds like fun! I don't have any aspirations for a marathon at this point but do have a goal to get to the half. I am thinking 10K by Christmas for our local Santa run (hopefully before but that is the goal), then on to the half for St. Patty's day. We will see!
Only 6 wine stops on the half... my marathon will be 23 😱 and then you get more wine as a prize.
Santa run sounds fun, and there’s more than enough time to be ready.
Well done... but, back to the plan... too fast, too soon...hidden injuries.. which are just that...hidden
Wow kwell, sounds like you’re a natural! Your unofficial 5k was quicker than any of mine! Just be wary of injuries - you know that though. 👍
I’m just striving for 10k. HM sounds too hardcore for words. Sounds bonkers even saying I run 5k regularly bearing in mind on June 11th I was begging MJ to call time on my 1 minuters!! 😅🏃♀️💪
Enjoy the rest of the programme. You have it in the bag! 👏
