Yes I know that's what the programme is called and I know that lots of you have done it already but I'm dead chuffed with myself!
I graduated just before Christmas and was running just over 2.5 miles in 30 mins. Other half had bought me a graduation t- shirt but had commented that I hadn't actually run 5k yet! He specialises in annoying at times!
Anyway I'd slacked off over Christmas and hadn't run for 30 mins for a couple of weeks but had done a few 20 min runs and a couple of 25 mins. So I had decided I must do 30 on Monday. Well I started to run and it wasn't too bad - I had decided to try out part of the route I'd mapped out for 5k including the hilly bits (isn't it amazing how what appears to be quite flat when driving in the car becomes much more of an incline when running!). Then I just thought I'm going to do this so I did. It took me almost 36 minutes and I was really proud of myself. Hard work and I only plan to do it once a week at the moment and stick to 30 mins for my other two runs but hopefully 5k and 30 mins will be the same thing in the near future!
