Well done! I think my first took me 40 minutes. I improved just with repeated running, and then adding in some intervals and hill reps after a while. Great start. Come and join us on the running thread, we are very friendly!
My first took me 46:32. Now pretty much one year on im at 36:45. I just kept running really! Is a huge achievement for me, I’ve always said I’d ‘never be able to run’. I do go to a running club but I wouldn’t say I do proper running training. Seem to have lost my mojo recently though. Need to find it again, would be a shame to lose the progress I made and the actual blood sweat and tears that went into it! Well done you - keep going!
Well done. I'm just getting back into running after months of nothing. I did 5k in 36.36 yesterday, with DS2 (10) helping me along. I'm usually very slow but have been working on getting faster. I've been doing a few 3.5k runs and running them faster to help up my pace.
At the start of January I was running 5k in just over 40 minutes so have improved a fair bit.
I did my first 5k run in 30mins but I’d been doing Insanity already so I was already pretty fit. I didn’t manage to get any faster though! I haven’t been able to do it since it’s been getting dark so early though but have stuck with Insanity, so we’ll see what I can do when the nights get lighter again!
