10k plan completed!!

Hi! So pleased to have completed Ju-Ju’s plan this morning! Thank you so much as I couldn’t have done it without the structure! I had my route all planned as I did it last week too although today was so much hotter!

It just shows how my fitness is improving with each run as I actually did it faster and I thought I was going much slower! I didn’t look at my phone until I got to my starting point thinking I’d have to go further but I’d done 10k!

I’m going to keep up with running 2 or 3 times a week and looking forward to exploring new routes. I don’t really feel like going much further at this point but then again I said that after I did 5K!!

Just hope my red face calms down a bit!! 😀🏃‍♀️

Thank you! Good luck with your plan! I found it just what I needed as I was stuck at 5 k for ages! Completing this has given me such confidence!! My face was much redder immediately after run!! I was shocked when I looked in mirror!!! 😀

Fantastic.. well done :)

Make sure to keep getting the 10k runs in now though to consolidate on the distance, it's so easy to let it slide and then 10k feels like a mountain again.

Thank you! Yes I’ll try! It was a bit of a mountain at times!!

How often do most people run 10k? Is once a week too much? 😀

Entirely up to you. I have only done 10k three times and then have done 12 and 15. I'd say at least every 2 to 3 weeks but every week would be excellent if you have the time, just give yourself some time off every few weeks. I still find it quite daunting myself, ie I feel like I have to prepare for that distance rather than just do it.

Thank you! I know even up here in Scotland it was hot although I did go out reasonably early! Think I need to look into getting vest top and perhaps shorts!!

Yes it’s a brilliant plan and I can always repeat it if need be!!!😀

Aww thank you!! I’ve been sat out on my sun lounger!! (Rarely gets an outing!) reading my book!!

It was lovely and relaxing until a big bumble bee 🐝 came along and I think I did another 10k dancing around to avoid it!!! I’m sure my neighbours think I’m crazy!! 😂

I know but it was huge and it kept circling my chair! Normally I sit still and they fly away but it wouldn’t go so I jumped up and it followed me!!! Rain here Sunday on my next day off!!!

That's brilliant ... very well done! 10k is a long way isn't it!

Before you know it I'm sure you'll be running further ... good luck with whatever you choose to do.

Happy running!

hoping to get to a 10 K myself within the next 8 weeks or so... have regularly managed 6.5 K to max of 8K in the last few weeks so sure it won't be long before I post my red-faced photo too! ;-)

Aww thank you! Yes I’m sure you’ll soon be there! Once I’d done 8K ,10k didn’t seem much further!! 😀

Oh well done!! That’s brilliant! It’s a great feeling and achievement!!

I thought I might feel a bit lost without a “plan” to follow now but quite the opposite! It’s given me a new lease of confidence and I’m happy running whatever distance I want to now! (Up to 10k !! )I’m going to start really enjoying new routes and taking it easy stopping to take photos etc! No desire to increase distance yet!! 😀👍🏃‍♀️

I feel exactly the same about running any distance now upto 10K . I will also be looking for new routes as yesterday I ran round my local nature reserve 7 times 🤣 to get to 10K.

Looking forward to hearing about your running 😊
