Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!

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 Dale - think I might come to London more often :)

  • Fantastic! Hope your badge arrives soon. :D

  • 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 :)

  • You have to be super slow to do that! ;) And wave to an invisible husband! :D

  • hee hee

  • Congratulations Graduate!!!! :-) Gayle

  • Thank you :D

  • Send a message to LoraHU to get your graduate badge - and congrats for your achievement.

  • Thanks for this - will do that right away and maybe tomorrow I will have a shiny green badge to show off with.

  • 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!

  • Fantastic achievement - well done :)

  • Huge congratulations to you! :)

  • Thank you :)
