So as some of you may recall I graduated on Easter Sunday, but was running just 3.6km in my 30mins. Last week I repeated a week 1 and a week 4 and ran 33mins on Saturday.
Today it was gorgeous weather, I had time and inclination, so I loaded up the iPod with "cheesy running music" did my laces up and started off round the harbour (its 5k and you have to do it because there are only two bridges!!
It was a mental battle, I really really wanted it, for the first time I used my tracking app to tell me av speed every 5 mins so I could focus on pace!
I ran and ran and kept running! Didn't stop when someone asked me directions, didn't stop when I crossed paths with some friends (running in opposite direction) and I finished it!! 43mins. 7km/h!!
I'm literally bouncing!! Plus it's my birthday tomorrow so what a way to celebrate!!!
If you're reading this and you're chugging through the early weeks - keep going!!! Just do it!! If I'm truly honest I was never 100% sure this day would come!!! If I can do it anyone can!!
Thanks for all your encouragement which has got me this far!!!
