Did my first 5k!

SallySparkle profile image

Once again there was far too long a gap between runs, and my run 6 days ago was my graduation one. As usual I felt like I was dying at first and 5 mins was surely really 20 mins at least. But once I'd passed the 15min mark it got easier. When my 30mins were up and it said I'd done 4.2k, I thought what the hell, I'll carry on to 5k. And I did! 36 mins it took me and I'm not even sore today. So I have now officially gone from the Couch to 5k, whoohoo!!

Thanks! Yes I'm over the moon today and am a bit annoyed at everyone else's indifference. It's worthy of some balloons, banners & streamers at least! ;)
