Just did 10k! Am I nuts?

Well I had to have 6 days off due to the lurgy/a cold but managed to get my c25k W9R2 done today! I slowed right down by about 1.5 mins/km as part of my "Slowing down and Learning to jog" strategy and ran way over 30mins (a long way over..like 1:04:00!!!! and 10k!!) as my hr was way down, legs felt strong and I felt so good to be back in the running shoes again! Although I have not graduated from c25k yet I will treat this as my b210k W1 long run ;-)

wow well done... I did wonder if you would do something like this. Just remember the 10% rule for your mileage this week, as thats a much longer run than usual. HM next? ;)

Yes, a bit stoopid. I just felt so good and 10k kept getting closer! Will stick to your 10k plan from now onwards though to build my legs correctly.

Yes, it was a bit risky to push on to 10k but I will be following JuJu's 10k plan properly from now onwards to build my legs and do intervals the right way.

This is amazing! It made me laugh at the image of you aka Forrest Gump, heading off over the horizon :) Of course you know it was a bit daft but hey, a bit of daftness is quite endearing!

Great run! We'll done indeed!! 👏👏👏👏

I went a bit over the 10% today too, but that was a mistake. My first 10k was a mistake too. It was supposed to be an 8k run, but I got lost and just kept going until I was nearly home. Oops! I made sure my next run was short and slow - ish though.

Jeez! Well done! I can't even contemplate running 10k yet. I finished c25k last week and last night managed 5.74k in 32 minutes, which I thought was good going, but 10k in just over 60 minutes is incredible, especially as you haven't finished the programme yet!

Luckily I seem to have got away with it. No damage. Not recommended tho.
