Hiya - I graduated from the Couch to 5k about 6 weeks ago. Since then (other than a week long migraine and issues with my back/hips, which new 'proper' running trainers seems to have resolved) I have been running 3 times a week. Sometimes it's a 5k (timing is 36 mins at the mo) or 6K which takes around 45 mins. I would have been further along the programme without the aforesaid issues holding me back! My goal was to be ready for the Great South Run in October. Is it still possible? My speed and stamina have improved but I'm getting conflicting messages - some say I'd be pushing myself too hard to be ready, and others are wanting me to sign up! I'd really appreciate your advice!
