I finally did it. A lovely sunny misty morning. There were more people about than I generally like, but I gritted my teeth and tried to ignore them. Not much wildlife to speak of, and the ground was a bit muddy. My race for life is in just over a week, so I was determined to get the 5K in under 30minutes. The Garmin wouldnt turn on at the crucial moment which stressed me, but then it got going-something to do with satellites I expect. I kept an eye on the pace, knowing that it had to be under 6 to acheive my target. The 4 gates and a stile and several road crossings all slowed me down, but allowed me to sneakily catch a little breather. Then I was there!! All done. 27 minutes 30 seconds for the 5K, and I completed the 30 minutes. Phew. I just have to keep going now. I am going to use my own playlist with more boppy music from the jog.fm suggestions list, but I am a bit worried that the RfL course is going to be hilly, and I dont like hills. I am so pleased to have done this C25K course. I think it is wonderful, but the thing that really makes it work is the support on this forum. Keep up the good work everyone, as Laura says 'you can do it'!!
