Bridge to 10K

Backwards step? We will see!

My running four times a week experiment continues! So far this week, 2 x 5 plus 1 x 6 and then I will do another 5 on Saturday. Legs feel good and strong. No ill effects from my three times a week and total distance over the week is the same so I have been pretty sensible!

A little disappointed I am missing a nice long run but I will just up one run a week until I reach 3 x 5 and a 10 but no hurry for that. Does that seem ok??

Sounds good to me. You're doing really well and obviously enjoying running 4x a week. Your plan sounds really sensible. Enjoy!

It does to me, but I am a real novice, so I'm watching how things turn out for you with rapt attention.

I have been running for a year. Pretty happy my legs coped well running four times a week. I still do my strength and flex exercises on running rest days. I have stopped step aerobics that I do at home too just to be cautious. I can slowly increase my weekly distance, but don't want to lose my ability to run 10k, will keep you updated. Final run tomorrow and will go for 5k

I really need to commit to doing some regular strength and flex work on my rest days.

Though carting my poorly, youngest grandsprocket around earlier this week must count for something...

As long as you feel okay and not overloaded.. that seems okay.
