Finally!! Finished the podcasts a few weeks ago, however week 9 must have downloaded incorrectly because when I timed it I was only jogging for about 25 minutes. So have recently used my own music and fitness setting on iPod and done between 30 and 33 minutes! Until yesterday when I pushed to completing 5k in just over 36 minutes! Really feel like I've graduated now and looking forward to getting out there on Saturday and doing it again!! Happy running everyone!!

  • Congratulations! Well done!!

  • You've graduated twice over... and with that time it may not be long until you do the 3rd, 5k in 30 minutes. Well done.

  • Congratulations!

  • Congratulations! You deserve a medal as well as that shiny green badge by your name!

  • Great stuff, Run456! Are you going to keep using your own music or are you going to try 5k+ podcasts? I tried stepping stones yesterday for the first time and in definitely increased my speed a bit:). I'm in the same position as you and now want to do 5k in 30 mins so let me know how you're getting on!

  • well done!

  • Congratulations Run456! You must be ecstatic. I'll be using stepping stones when I graduate next Friday, then my own music to boost it up along the way. So happy for you! :-)
