W8R3 victory


I just wanted to share my success today. Until now I’ve been doing most of my runs on a running track due to having the kids with me but I’ve got quite bored of just running round and round so today I managed to get some me time and pounded the pavements with a more interesting route and no lie I smashed it! I have been managing around 3.8km on the track in my 28 mins and today in 29 mins I ran 5k!!! I actually ran 5k for the first time in my life. I’m over the moon!!!!!

Wow... that’s impressively fast! Great job there... most people go faster in track too! Congratulations on the first of many 5k runs.

I think I just get bored on the track and tire more easily. This run didn’t feel any faster although it must have been. I still can’t believe it!


Wow that's absolutely amazing and an incredible time for a first 5k. Enjoy your graduation week!!
