I have done four runs since leaving the IC... my distances vary... none of the runs are too long and all 40 minutes and under. I did not want to push myself, or my knee, too hard., so have gone steadily.
First run, on hols, Tuesday last week...just under 5K, second run Friday.. about the same distance...give or take a detour to look at a lamb! Third run, Sunday, back home, 6.72 K... and yesterday...5.72K.
So...I can run for 5K comfortably and beyond..always got something left, and feel like I could go on...So, I am capable of increasing my distance; now;
Does it matter that I fluctuate...if I want to increase my distance, which I do? Ought I to try to do that, by building up each time? Is it detrimental to have some shorter and longer runs.. how will I know if I am making progress, unless I am consistent.. So many questions...!
This why I don't think I should be posting on this forum.. you all know what you are doing! I sound like a twit. Maybe I am not ready for the big school yet!
