I graduated last July and like many mourned the loss of Sarah, my constant companion over the 9+ weeks. Now what? 🤷♀️ Well since then I’ve had a variety of runs. Some 5k, some less and one even 7k (don’t know how that happened). 😱 Some Parkruns and one ‘race’ that terrified me (it was fine!) Some were walk/runs (jeffing is the term used) and some just fitted the time I could manage. Sometimes I felt guilty because I wasn’t sure it was a ‘proper’ run! I joined the Bridge to 10k and I read about the increasing efforts of my VRBs with envy but I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not for me. I’m happy to go out for my 5k OTA or my 30 min OTA. OTA is ‘or there abouts’ so every run is a success and every run is a proper run. Does that mean I’ll not do 10k? Not necessarily. 😆 I’ve printed off Jo-Jo’s magic plan and one day I MIGHT start. Just maybe not today.
Bottom line - every run counts and if you’re still out there running after graduation that’s what matters. Not time, not distance - but I still check both!! 🤣🤣🤣 Have fun and well done to us all.
