Last week I asked for some advice on here The concensus was to do two shorter runs and perhaps a longer one each week. So I followed that advice and earlier in the wek I ran just under 5k at my fastest pace and on Saturday morning I ran a very slow 10k. I had set myself the challenge of completing 10k by the end of the year so well ahead of schedule on that one. I will drop back the distance now, continue with 3 runs a week and work on improving my pace and losing weight.
This forum is a great supportive place. But by writing out my goals in public is a good way of maintaining focus on them. Thanks to all.
