Hi. This is my first time posting here. I finished C25K in August and I wasn't really improving but I was enjoying it more. I started running in the woods which was lovely but challenging.. I felt like I wasn't increasing my distance. I signed up for the the cancer research UK winter run in London for the end of January and decided I better start getting more distance in. After a 7k road running last Saturday I felt so great after I was disappointed I had stopped. So yesterday I pushed myself to road run 10k I did it in 1hr 9minutes so not a great time. It was all flat. I'm sore all over today and I feel I over did it. Would you recommend going back and gradually uping the distance again say 7.5k next weekend for the one long weekend run or would you say I should push beyond 10k to build up stamina for that distance? Thank you
