Hi All, went out and did my first run since Graduation at the weekend, really pleased, I struggled as usual for the first half but it did include a hill, but it evened out as I went round. The good news is I ran 5.02km in 51.36secs, slow I know, but wanted to get the 5km under my belt. We were so excited at doing the 5K we walked back to the wrong car park , so in all I did 7k . Played my own playlist did my five minute warm up walk to Elvis Presley G I Blues, silly old fool or what
First Post Graduation Run: Hi All, went out and... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Hi Pat and wow you did the 5k ... wish I had the dancing icon from skype for a celebratory dance. CONGRATULATIONS!
HI Delia.Thanks it was quite a struggle today. But a few months ago we had a lovely man at our exercise class, who gave us a demonstration on tai chi , and the music was lovely, so I downloaded it from Itunes, put it on my playlist and when I was getting out of breath I play it and it really calmed me down. Pat
Thats brilliant, well done you and dont worry about the speed; you have just achieved something really special! Congrats!
Thats great Pat - took me ages to attempt 5K and I've still only managed it once! I would also say don't worry about the speed (I am slow too) its the fact you have been moving for over 50 mins that counts ~ how fab is that
Well done Pat. Wow you kept moving for 50mins!! That in it's self is something to celebrate. I nearly collapsed after 25mins this morning.
Well done Pat, getting that first 5k under your belt is such a great feeling!
Wow! 50 minutes solid - I am still st the stage of dreading week 5, so I'm massivley in awe! Well done!
Well done Pat. It's a great feeling and such an inspiration to others too. I just graduated and already two people I work with have downloaded the podcasts and are starting on their journey so I'll cheer them all the way, just like the lovely welsh-woman and others did for me.
I feel good da da da da da - and I am sure you do toooo.
Well done Pat, you should be very proud of running for 50 minutes - that's great stamina (& a hill too, you're braver than me!).
Way to go Mum.. (wrong car park indeed, what a pair!! )
Just had to say - the badge looks good! And well done on your 5K run. You're a legend!
Well done Pat, that's brilliant. I managed 5K for the first time last week and it took me about 50 minutes too, but it's great to finally smash that target. Hope I can do it again now.
I've been wondering about doing Tai Chi. Any tips?

pace was slower. I did give a nice burst for the last home stretch!
In total I ran for 35 minutes...
two months ago I have also worked out exactly where to park my car so as to avoid this temptation...
