Read a very sound article today which I wanted to share:
Not sure how to share it as a link but hope u can read it. I feel not following a rigid 5-10k plan is working well for me because I have been able to settle at a distance that is comfortable while also pushing when I felt the time was right. I have gone from 5k on graduating from C25K 13 weeks ago to running a couple of 10k, no injury to date. I was a non runner 23 weeks ago! Listening to your own body is always a good way to make progress!
