Bridge to 10K

Weekly chat 30th to the 6th February 👣👣👣

Please feel free to share your runs here and chat about how it's all going, sometimes we don't feel like putting a whole post up but just want to share something small, so this is a great place for doing that during the week.

If your a lurker it is a great place to say a little hi without the pressure of a full post.

Wishing you all a happy healthy week.

I'm very happy to report that I ran a little over 10k this morning for the first time for two or three months. :)

I'm also very happy that Strava says I've run over 100k this month. :)

I'm sometimes prone to be discouraged at others' rate of progress (and rate of running!) being so much better than mine. But honestly, this time last year I would NEVER have thought it possible to run 100k in a month. In fact I am absolutely certain I hadn't run 100k in the preceding 50 YEARS!

"I hadn't run 100k in the preceding 50 YEARS!" - LOVE IT!!!! Was just thinking this yesterday myself.

I have averaged just a little under 100 k per month over the past year - 75 was the minimum one month and 125 max another month - 110 this past January. I read somewhere that we should never look ahead when running - but look behind to see where we have come from!!! :) I have to keep reminding myself of that all the time!!!

Last night was my first 10+k since the Great South Run back in October. Must try harder...

Yep, that's true Baz

I just started running again. I have done two short runs to test my legs and get back to my running plan as I have a race in March.

My calves don't 'alf ache! I thought they'd be fine. Doh!

I'm creeping in here, having finally got to the end of C25k, and starting to think what next. I'm doing a 5k at the start of April, and am hoping against hope that I might be able to do a local 10k in mid-May. It's a nice flat one, so shouldn't be too tough as these things go - but we'll see. I'm deliberately not planning it in, but will try building up gradually from my current 4.4km in 33 mins, and see what happens.

Might try either speed or stepping stone tonight. Speed will be tough, but I think the shorter time could be good... Hmm, decisions, decisions! :)

Hi All, I have been running 5k 3 times a week since graduating 3 weeks ago. Sunday was my PB 38 minutes 49 secs. What I have done, seems to have inspired others to take up the c25k program. My wife is now on week 5. I have kept her company on the tough days such like w4r3 the 20mins :-). I am so pleased that she is doing the c25k. We have been together for 30 years married 25 years and not once before had she ever ran anywhere. Friends of mine have also been inspired and taken up the program. I have set myself a target that I will continue to run the 5k's until I get the time down to 35 mins thereabouts. Once I have done that I intend to start the b210k. Time permitting otherwise will continue to do 5k - 6k maybe 7k.

I had an absolutely hellish day yesterday, the only good point of which was me going to bed at 9pm! Today has been better, but still exhausting (Miss Rainbow is struggling with mental health/anxiety issues, and we're *finally* managing to get help after too many months of waiting). I was planning on going out for a Speed session at some point today or this evening, but have a headache when I move, I think as a result of combined dehydration and sheer tiredness. So tomorrow then... Unless a miracle happens. Or mr rainbow gets home before it's completely dark!
