Wow, I can't believe I've done it.
On walkjogrun.net/ my stats are:
5.05 km10.1 km/h 5:54 mins/km 0:29:48 451.8
Woop, woop - looks like I hit the 5km mark!!
I did my last week 8 run on Friday. Was really cold when I set off so even threw a long sleeve top on over my tshirt. It was off by the end of the warm up of course. Again, not an easy run but did it.
Then the first week 9 run yesterday. Was hot outside, so my cheeks were burning not long into it (yes I do rather the cold than this!). I changed my route for the first time since starting the longer runs, which was quite nice. Now I've got lots more possibilities I can try. Didn't think I'd hit the 5km till after week 9 but after mapping my run it looks like I have! So happy, as that was unexpected. I think for my next run I'm going to go to my local park wher they have the parkrun and try it out to see if I am doing the actual 5km.
I did it and felt great at the end, but was seriously flagging during it. Will this ever get 'easy'?!
2 more runs until graduation
