“All went surprisingly well yesterday with this run, although I had to ease off a couple of times due to back. Felt really good after. Maybe the jacuzzi and sauna helped too #recovery day! Total time 5k in 26:36 :) #party ”

Alex D Run a 5k in under 30 minutes Challenge

Contributorgold Alex D 30:07 tonight. So close!! I ran so hard for the line when I realised how close I was but could not quite do it. I never thought I would be that close and hadn't looked at my watch! Next time!


A Friday??? In the evening I suppose..... I'll be sending you positive vibes!!!!!! :-)))

Alex D and Amanda C encouraged this.
