First ever 5k today W11 ! Thanks to head voice!!

Running came to me easier today and I felt a bit stronger. I didn't set out to do it, my intention being to cover another 30 mins best I could, but during the run I realized something was changing and I had this thought to just keep going. I was in a strange place mentally and a small voice said "you can do your 5k today if you dare". To which I replied in my silent head voice, 'OK I will', and I DID! πŸ˜—

Not record breaking, but all mine and I'm still amazed.

Distance 3.21 miles

49.02 mins

15.11 pace.

How do I feel? I think you already know...

Best wishes to all. πŸ˜‰x

Like Dory in Finding Dory, but "Just Keep Running..."

I'm not as cute as Dory, but perseverance is the same especially when applied to running and I'll do my best!. Best wishes ☺️.

And running for almost 50 minutes is just as amazing! Sometimes it feels right to carry on and you took advantage of that! I’ve done the same myself. πŸ‘

Fantastic news!!!⚑️⚑️⚑️Absolutely thrilled for you. I don’t know yet how it feels to reach 5k, but I do know the feeling of constantly surprising oneself with the amazing developments in our abilities. Another milestone. βœ¨πŸ’«β˜„οΈπŸ¦ŒπŸ¦ŒπŸ¦Œ

I loved the bit where you said β€˜not record breaking, but all mine and I’m still amazed’. And extra special how much you enjoyed the run itself. 🦌🦌🦌
