Only gone and done a PB !!

I finished work at 2am on Saturday morning and then at 11am I ran my first EVER 5K run. Strangely I wasn't nervous but really excited. The Big Fun Run was great, well organised but I did find out that it was untimed.

Fortunately my friend ran with me and remember her watch. I ran it in 30mins 52 seconds, knocking off 38 seconds from my graduate run on Monday. This was it, the goal of the programme as I booked this run when I started C25K (honestly not really believing I would do it). Now I proper believe I can run the next step.

ps apparently while drunk and celebrating I agreed to do the Disney Marathon at some point in the next few years but hey, the medal is shaped like Mickey mouse so its probably worth it !!!
