Exceeding weekly targets?


Last week I thought I’d try a run to see how far I’d go before starting bridge to 10k. I managed 6k so decided this week I’d start the plan at week 2. Tonight I went out to do 6k but felt fairly good so went on to 7.4k (could’ve gone to 8k I think but by 7.4k I was home😂). Is it ok to just push through as long as I feel ok to do so? I’m only doing the one long run a week. I am attempting some kind of interval training (run 1) on another day, and all of this I hope will improve my ParkRun (run 2) time which I’m desperate to get to sub 30!

Wow well done Tash to think a couple of weeks ago you were worrying about do graduation run! Your confidence is soaring! Just don't overdo distance too quick! 👍

He he he I know 😂

Nice to read. Great.

Nicely done.

Always remember the 10% rule, also it can be good to consolidate every couple of weeks.



Ooh yes ok 👍🏽

Just take it carefully. Don't make the mistake of increasing your distance too quickly. I managed to give myself an achilles problem and was then unable to run for a few weeks.

Glad that you're enjoying it though. :-)

Ok! Hope you’re ok now!

Oh yes, this was over a year ago when I was doing the Sami Murphy Bridge to 10k.

I'm much more sensible about only increasing distance a little at a time. My last run was actually 20km, but I'd been working up to it for several weeks.

Wow... just looked at the map and realised that that is where I grew. Well done and keep it up.

#UTB. good to see I’m not the only smoggy trying to get the soot out of my system. Seriously, you look to be doing great... keep it up.

😂 smog monsters rule 👌🏽 You moved then?

You’ll be fine on this program. If I can do it, anyone can 💪🏽

Chris73G in reply to Tasha99

Smog monsters🤣🤣🤣🤣

Yes I moved a long time ago but try to get back to the smog as after as possible.

Determination, perspiration and dedication along with a lung full of clean air. That’s all we need. Oh and less wine, walkers crisps and all the other nice things we eat and drink 🍷☹️

It’s not so bad here now 👍🏽 😂

*but love the odd parmo*

BTW I can recommend a run around the barrage up towards Stockton. Very nice 👌🏽

Yay! 🤗 #UTB 😂

How are you getting on post graduation Tasha

Tasha99Graduate10 in reply to Jullaly

Not too bad thank you. Long run tonight again so we’ll see how I do in the warmth. It’ll be a late start I think!

Glad you’re ok too. You’re doing such a fab job!
