2 weeks shy of my 58th birthday and I have actually run non-stop for 10km, 103 days after my first C25K run that nearly finished me off, I have said it before and will say it again, this community, led by our wonderful Admin and populated by a great group of people add so much to the experience, love you all
Did it,! My first ever 10k: 2 weeks shy of my... - Bridge to 10K
Love it!! Such a great run (and you beat my pb 🙃 HoagyM we have Steve to deal with now!!). So pleased for you and welcome to the 10K club and podium! 🙌🏼🍾💪🏼 X
Thanks Ripcurlrana71 my happy pace seems to be about 6:30/km but didn't think I would last 10k, kept trying to slow down but everytime I tried to focus on that I seemed to speed up
Thanks mountaindreamer I don't seem to have much of an option, find it difficult to run much slower, but I intend to practice!
I know I’ve only used it once so far, but that Stepping Stone podcast with the bpm “music” did get me running steadily but much slower than normal, so I’m convinced using “slower than your normal pace bpm” music is a good way to deliberately go slower if you want to. Podrunner has loads of free set bpm music, so I’m going to try dialing my speed trying some of those out.
Oh well done, that’s fantastic, and superb pace. That would have given you a time of just under 1:05, right, not that it matters.
What’s impressed me the most is how quickly you’ve gone from starting C25K to running your first 10k, I am in awe!
Well done again, don’t forget to claim that shiny graduate badge if you haven’t already
Thanks Jelon this forum is brilliant in terms of feeling supported and being able to be supportive, just love it
Lol, thanks Dexy5 was a great feeling to do that 10k, still seems unreal to be running non stop for over an hour
