So I graduated about 8 weeks ago and could run for 30 mins but never made the 5k. With holidays and everything else I still ran but couldnโ€™t get there however today was the day - I just went and completed 5k and did it in 41.5 mins - Iโ€™m so chuffed. Thanks to all on here - it really does feel amazing. Park run here I come ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Great job... determination and hard work got you there... enjoy that parkrun!

Well done you!!! Have you decided What running life will be for you? Faster.....further or just continue as you are? I am still only running 30 mins 3 times a week I am enjoying the after achievement feeling but still finding the run hard going though must admit hills are now in my routes

Hi Fershome - thanks a mill. Iโ€™m so elated to be able to do the 5k so will repeat for the next 4-5 runs and then do the park run. Iโ€™d prefer to run further distance not too strict re timing !! I just am so happy I can do it but I love it when Iโ€™m out there. Donโ€™t get me wrong every run is tough so hope it will get better.

How about you what are your goals??

I am not sure I run early in the morning and already am struggling as itโ€™s not the same in the dark.... think itโ€™s going to be a long winter lol maybe I may try a longer run on a Sunday....I think I may need a plan to help with the focus.... I do walk a lot having a border collie sorry mojo seems missing just now but reading this forum really helps so keep posting and congratulations again
