I did it!!!! 5km virtual race PR (Read 942 times)


Now that was a bath...

    I was hoping to do this 5km in under 30 minutes and I was so excited to achieve 28:59! I actually collapsed on the grass in the park where I finished and lay there laughing staring at my watch! I went out way too fast for me and got to the halfway point in under 13 minutes. I had to walk the first two minutes back and had another very short walk break at 4km. The wind was really full on and I sounded asthmatic thanks to my cold but on the home stretch the wind was behind me and I gave it all I had. Still can't believe I did it. My pace going out was 8:15 and on the return leg with the walk breaks it was 10:26 (an overall pace of 9:20). Woohoo for me, lol. Claire xxx

        Thanks Janell. I know it's not a winning time but it certainly feels great to achieve what I hoped to do. I look at the times other people manage and I am blown away by how they run so fast. I have been running regularly for four weeks now. It will be interesting to see how much i can improve in the future, but for now I am happy to achieve my mini-milestones!!! Claire xxx
