2 months after graduation, still going!

Hello, I haven't posted for a while, but still pop by to read everyone's posts!

I graduated 2 months ago and have continued to run three times a week, one 5km run and another 5km over the other two runs (I did 2.5km this morning). I still have a love /hate relationship with running, but the love must be overcoming the hate as I get up at 5am every other day and hit the streets!

So if you are struggling or wondering what to do after graduation, keep going! I struggled to run for a whole minute in the first week, only 4 months ago, now I can run 5km... Still amazes me 😊

That's excellent, I remember us finishing at roughly the same time! I'm happy as I am too, I feel like what I'm doing is doing me good, and don't want to push myself and put myself off!! Glad you're still going and happy 😊

Hey, me too. Never thought it would be possible. Still enjoying the benefits and hoping to reach 10k at some point. Lovely to hear from you πŸ‘πŸ»πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

Thank you, and that's brilliant, the continued running and the goal of 10km! I sometimes wonder whether I'll be able to manage that one day! I'm still to scared to do a park run at the moment as I'm so slow, but maybe one day my aspirations will happen... 😊
