So first run after graduating last friday.

Mapped out 5k on map my run and decided to do week 9 podcast and note how far along route i got at 30 minutes.

Good plan.

But when laura said you can walk now i knew i only had about 0.75k left so thought to myself "run another couple of minute....now run to that bench.....now run past those workmen....there's the 5k marker! And got to the finish line about 30 secs before laura said that's it!

So 5k in just under 35 minutes!

(The workmen were very impressed)

High 5 for me!

Absolutely thrilled and chuffed :) onward and upward :)
