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

Yep! I’m beginning to feel like the unfit parent in a park, watching the youngsters whooping and hollering as they scamper off into the distance 😂

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 :)

Great stuff Steve and welcome to that disreputable offshoot of the ju-ju plan, the Naughty Club 😉

Massive congratulations, here’s a few more random emoji’s for you... 👏🥇😀🥂🏃🏼‍♂️👍🍾

That pace is terrific too, effectively your 10k pace is my 5k pace, and that’s after your very first 10k. 😳😀Good work!

Just shows what we can achieve if we put our minds to it, and definitely an issue of mind as much as body

So well done! Once I get to 10k my goal is to get to 30min 5K, would love a sub 30 but just don't think I'll be able to achieve it, but who knows. :)

Lol, thanks Dexy5 was a great feeling to do that 10k, still seems unreal to be running non stop for over an hour

Yes I can’t get to grips with that thought yet, but I’m happy where I am on 4 and 5ks at the moment.
