What next?

So I got to 10k yesterday. I’m not interested in going further for the moment but do want to improve my pace, mainly for 5k. What should my weekly running plan be? I’d considered:

Run 1 faster paced 4K or 4K with intervals (if I can but I find them hard!)

Run 2 5k ParkRun

Run 3 longer, slower run. Should this be 10k every week?

Any advice would be appreciated!

I guess 1 shoe does not fit all. Howvere mine is similar to yours but a different order. I am now tempted to join a running group for more structure but not done enough research on the clubs yet

I got to 15k a couple weeks back, I actually think once you can do 10k most of the rest is the mental battle, unfortunately my asthma holds me back a lot of the time, going to do a 7k tomorrow

I like the idea, slightlyfasterdave until I crack the 24 mins and then superfastdave - damn those personal running goals!

Admin, how do I change my username?

Wow Tasha, go girl!! Well done to you! 🍾😊
