Was in such a dither about this run. Really looking forward to the sense of achievement of getting it done. Terrified of the disappointment if I didn't finish it. Fortunately I'm celebrating. I have never ever in my life run (ok staggered) for that long timewise....and apparently I'll be doing it again next week.
Nest run is a 5k Parkrun on Saturday ...but that's definitely a run walk ... I'll be trying run 90s walk 50s intervals after a brisk 5 min warm up walk. trying to improve on my PB of 41:41. Last time I used r70w50 intervals for a time of 43:33
You don't have to graduate before trying a parkrun, just warn the marshalls that you might be slow ...my first one took 53:30 and I wasn't last. The ground doesnt eat you up if you do come last ...you just get the finishing funnel and cheerers all to yourself.
