I finally did it!

I completed my graduation run on Saturday and managed 5kms in 32 minutes, which was a little quicker than last time.

First 'post-grad' run and I just ran 5 kms in 30 minutes dead - not sure if you can tell but I am sooooo pleased.

Must admit to being in London this week on business so my run was an awful lot flatter than the rolling hills of Somerset, so I may never do it again but ....

Right, off to look up the next phase of the programme and to ask for my badge :)

Congratulations on the 30 ! A lot flatter a lot quicker, it's all good!

Will look out for the shiny green thing!

All the best

Thanks Greenlegs.

Just read your post about running for 54 minutes!

Am inspired enough to try a longer run on Saturday - not sure I could last that long though :)

What a great first post-grad achievement! Very well done and congratulations! :) If only all of London were flat.....but then compared to the undulating landscape of Somerset it is!! ;) Not quite the same scenery though......

Thanks Sue - I ran round Hyde Park so it really was quite flat, will make a note to avoid hotels in hilly areas of London for my next visit ;)

There were so many other runners out as well, certainly spurred me on.

Hyde Park must be nice to run round actually; I must try it after work when it's lighter or Regents Park. Thanks for the tip!
