Thought I'd pop in and say Hi :-)

With two more runs until Couch25k Graduation I thought I'd pop over here to ask a couple of "what next" questions. I understand from the other forum that there is a plan for extending to 10k so the first question is - where do I find the plan?

I've also read that it's a good idea to consolidate with a few extra weeks at 5k before moving on. My baseline fitness was good before I started the programme, I'd just never run before, so I'm actually already at 5k in 30 mins. I am really enjoying running and really want to avoid injury so if I need to consolidate that won't be a problem but I do like a new challenge! :-)

Hi piano, i was doing Ju Ju’s 10k plan which you can find in the bridge to 10k section or put in search plan or contact Ju Ju she is on the admin team i think. I have adapted it a bit to suit where i am and hopefully will be there in 4 or 5 weeks. Did a 4m last week going to try 4.5m this week, 5m next hopefully 6m week adter on one of my long runs. I sort of review each week for following week, working so far. Enjoy your week.

Hello.... huge well done on graduating and at a great time too. I do a rolling 10k plan on here. It’s not an app but there are weekly posts to keep you going. I start the next one on the 15th. Otherwise feel free to use the plan as you wish and the weekly posts for support ( you will see everyone is at different points in the plan). This is the week 1 post:
