Oh Yes I finally did 5k!

Hello everybody, Just had to share this with you....I finally ran 5k and then some on the Treadmill, sweaty as a sweaty thing, red hair dye running down my neck (I dyed it on Friday..der)! But I did it, to my own music, Upped the pace and did it in less than 30 minutes :) Yay me!!!

Enough about me, how is everybody else getting on? I hope you're all still enjoying the c25k and beyond :)

Oh and I went to see Mcfly last night, just wanted to share that with you :)

  • well done! think it will take me about an hour, I don't seem to go very far, how long did it take you? how did you manage to up the pace?am very impressed!

  • Congratulations keep at it :)

  • Well I finished c25k about two weeks ago and was nowhere near running 5k so that was in my head all the time, I really had to do it! I figured if I couldn't do it outside I'd try the Tread mill, I started off at about 7.5 and gradually increased speed to 8.8, as I eased into the run I increased it to 9.6 but only for a little bit as I was feeling the burn ! It went quite quick and before I knew it the screen said 3 miles :) I pushed myself to carry on but not for long, managed it in 29 minutes :)

  • I knew you could do it!! Well done...was so pleased to see the title of your blog :) :) :) 5k and under 30 minutes am very impressed patbutcher. I will need to up my game to catch you lol.
