W9R2 One to go!! Two firsts today πŸ˜πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Wow!! 1 run until graduation at park run!!

My two firsts were

- Ran with a friend. She’s an experienced triathlete so just ran at my pace.

- No music today!!

I’ve got to say it was so lovely running with a friend. Conversation flowed so I know my pace is ok (not much talking in the last 5 minutes πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)

Even managed my fastest km at 6:48 which was an added bonus.

I managed 4km in the 30 minutes so will be chuffed with under 40 minutes at park run.

Beautiful day out there today β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ

Enjoy your running lovely people πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Great job... sometimes it’s great to not run alone... and yeah, parkrun is gonna be all about that πŸ˜‚

Enjoy that graduation parkrun... slow and steady away and you’ll be fine, do what you just did running with a friend and keep your pace and you’ll be fine... love every step.

Thank UNM.

I’m definitely going to try and enjoy it. I’m running with the same friend again for park run so she will get me round that last km.

How’s your first week since graduation? 😁

Good morning UNM, yesterday I told you that today I was going to attempt to run my second 5k on the official 5k course that is used for a 'Santa Xmas dash 5k run' at Christmas near to where I live , so using my new Smartphone and for the first time Mapmyrun I set off on that course at exactly 9.30am and according to Mapmyrun finished in a time of 33.40.

Last Saturday my first 5k run was 34.21.

Well done 'jlw34' must be really good to run with a experienced triathlete πŸƒand not having any music is not the end of the world. Good that you set a PB with 6.48 your fasted Kilometer and 4km in 30 minutes is a good time to get. πŸ‘πŸ˜€
