Bridget C 25:22 today but 3 little hills and 2 HUGE hills slowed me down, pace on the flat was 4:56-ish so it's possible once my legs have recovered!!

Brendan F ran my pb 22.41 , just ran solid pace and still found enough to run quickest for last km . very happy . challenge complete
Sam B My current best 5k time is 25:52 & it's taken me a long time to get that fast! Will give this a go, would love to get below 25 minutes.
Lux A I'm so impressed with all of you who's running 5km in under 25 min. I currently run 5km in 28 min and can't imagine doing it in under 25. But I'm determined to make it :D
Justeene H Need to know my kilometres!! Ran 3.02miles in 24.42 today and then realised it's 3.1 miles!! So near but so far!! I'll try again next week
Graham H encouraged this.
Colleen O Did awful today. There were a lot of negative factors though: getting over a cold, minorly tweaked hammy, super crowded start (lots of walkers), slushy/snowy/icy, slipped and fell. Oh well. Next time.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
