Just got home and burst into tears - I've done it! Whooooo ooo oooo

It's just hit me - I've done week 9 r3 and it feels totally unreal. Me - running for 30 minutes without stopping. I've just roughly mapped my run and I managed about 4.68k - so in a couple of weeks I might try one of those park runs.

Right now time for a shower and then I'm off to meet my running buddy who did her graduation run this morning too. We'll be dancing in the streets.

  • thanks everyone - now it's the battle to run the full 5k and whittle away those pesky minutes to get it under 30 mins. I've got a feeling that could take me a good month - will try to do a park run before the end of january in the best time I can manage.

  • Well done! Brilliant :)

  • Well done! Brilliant :)

  • CONGRATULATIONS GRADUATE!!!!!!! :-) What an awesome way to welcome in the New Year!!!!! I say go for it! Just do a Parkrun! :-) The week of my graduation, I ran in an organized 5K. I'm still not near a 30 min./5K but it was an experience worth doing!!! Have a great time celebrating and congratulations to your running buddy as well!!!! Gayle
