I graduated in early December and over the Christmas period I was running about once a week and despite running for 30 minutes that elusive 5k seemed just out of my grasp. Today I ditched Laura for the first time but I did have the runkeeper lady telling announcing my time and distance every 5 minutes. After 30 minutes I had got to 4.4k so I included my cool down walk and when Runkeeper clicked to 5.00k I felt like Mo Farah must have felt at the Olympics except there was just me grinning like a madwoman and silently cheering myself. I know some of you can get to 5k in 30 minutes but I know lots of us can't but wanted to share that feeling of achievement with you, guess I'll be grinning like a cheshire cat for the rest of the day.
Next step- running the whole 5k!
Hope you all have good runs this week ....,
