    Well done mate!

    Done my first 10k today! Finished in 1:01:02. Made up with it even though it was just over the hour time I wanted! The last kilometre was horrible but just about made it!

    Well done mate, yesterday was my first 10k too. Lost my calves at about the 7k mark but actually quite enjoyed it (and the beers after).

    Well done to all you guys on all your running exploits. I watched the Manchester 10k feature on TV yesterday, and was inspired to put in my own 10k after it. What a pleasant weekend it has been!

    Lot harder than expected - some really long inclines , route was very crowded and it was humid.
    Great support and atmosphere though.

    Next Stop .. Southend Half in a few weeks.

    Well done mate! That last 3k was hard cos you could see the Hilton in the distance for me! The beers after were very good!

    Here's to the next one!

    First run of wk 8 of couch25k just done.

    3 x 28 min runs this week and managed 4.42km.

    Could have easily done 5k today if i had wanted.

    Brilliant program to follow for anyone who like me couldn't run 30 seconds just 8 weeks ago!
