Graduated (end of week 9) April 8th, ran my first 5k (43mins) last week, and did the same again (same route same time - I am nothing if not consistent) this week.
I've had a few adverntures with doing Fartlek style re-using previous weeks podcasts to help increase my speed!
I just wanted to send a message to encourage all slow runners! I keep seeing posts saying "I am very slow" and then I read it and realise they are loads faster than me!!
So I thought I would send a post to say - if you're running you're running and speed isn't the be all and end all. In one month I am doing a 5km race with colleagues and I know I will be the slowest of our group - in fact I am fairly sure I'll be the one that the "mop up" runner (yes that is the phrase the running club uses) has to run with.. but i am going to do it - because I AM running!
So if you're slow - 3 cheers to you - and to me!
