I recently graduated from C25K and I am now running 5K X 3 times a week. Had 2 great runs this week and ran for 6K which is surprising! As I am running further, trying to find good places to go that don't involve endless circuits of the playing field. I don always like trudging on the Tarmac and today ran through some woods along a gravel track.
I felt reasonably ok with it. Had my phone, personal alarm and there were several dog walkers around but a friend said it was worrying I run in the country. Frustrating because what alternative is there - don't have anyone to run with and don't like running clubs.
As the distances get longer, this is getting harder. Julie
