Run badger run
You may remember that last November I started running, partly because colleagues were doing it (or talking about it) and partly just because it seemed like a good idea for fitness and whatnot.

There's quite a group of us at work now who go running at lunchtimes, it's settled into a pretty good routine and we've been upping the mileage every week, so over the last few months I've ended up doing quite a bit of running -- certainly loads more than I'd've ever done on my own.

Anyway, this morning I did roughly the same route that I couldn't quite manage when I started back in November, with an extra bit tacked on the end, in 29 minutes (no, I'm still not a fast runner, but I do only have tiny little badger legs). Definitely not as much fun running on my own (and slightly odd that I seem to run slower when I don't spend the whole time talking to people!) but good to know I can do it.

I think I need a 'running' icon.

That's really very impressive!

I don't know what "pace" means, though.

Pace would be the average time per mile, and from my viewpoint it looks a perfectly respectable one!

You're on the right side of 10 minute miles, which is definitely proper running (and is likely to just keep getting better). Good stuff!

And now you're evidently up to five miles, still at the same speed!

I'm really impressed. :-) Keep up the great progress, as long as you keep enjoying it!
