I went out and ran my graduation run this morning. I've not been out that way for what seems like ages and not done that particular route since the day I graduated. That's about 6 weeks ago.
Instead of Laura's full 5 minute warm up walk, I started running at the bottom of the hill as I do these days. So the run was about 5.1k rather than the scrape through 5.04k.
It's a nice 'easy' route, all the uphill climbs are at the beginning so the way home is the gradual downhill which you can stretch out on and pretend you're a real runner who's not shattered at the end of her run!
I'm improving, I must be getting slightly fitter.....
Distance: 5.11k (5.04k)
Time: 33.57 (35.22)
Avg speed/km: 6.38 (7.02)

Why am I renaming it? That's the biggest change for me! Not the fact that I'm getting out there and running (that's just a means to an end, more exercise = more food when I get down to my 'target weight') but that I'm dragging myself out of bed early enough to do it. I was up at 7.30 this morning, out the house just after 8. This is a weekend chaps! I don't do early of a weekend, it's the time I catch up on sleep from having to get up and out early during the week! So, not couch to 5k, but BED to 5k!
