Sent me by the speedy Running Daughter as I have done my first 5K, πŸ’•. Posting it is prompted by a post on here by Runfatgirlrun71. Too technically challenging for me to put it in a reply!

Lol, like what is heavier, a ton of feathers or a ton of steel? 5K is the same distance for a snail to cover as a gazelle.

Absolutely agreed. That's the wonderful thing about running. What's more, if you're a slow runner you have to work for longer... at my parkrun, some people are running less than half as long in minutes as me. I'm sure that means I'm doing more work!! :)

So true. I did parkrun this week and as I was complaining that the people lapping us had almost finished and we still had a lap to do, my more experienced running buddy commented that 5k is still 5k no matter how fast, and no matter how much pain I thought I was in, that guy was probably feeling worse at that moment πŸ˜‚
