My first 10k

Just to share - very pleased to have completed my first ever 10k yesterday early morning setting out at 5:30. I've been using the Stepping Stone Podcasts since graduating - and had been doing the two interval podcasts back to back gradually stretching myself, running every second day and now use the first of the Podcasts back to back with a one intervals podcast.

Did 9.85km on Wednesday and then finally broke through with 10.5km on Friday. Aim to do another 10k tomorrow morning and consolidate at this distance.

Wishing everyone a great weekend

Very Best Regards

Richard

Well done... that is brilliant...make sure to slip a couple of short runs in, as recovery runs now and then too :)

Well done on your first 10k!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉😃❤️🥂🍾🏆🏅😊

As others have said, though, perhaps try to do some shorter runs too. If you’re new to running like most of us new 10kers then one long run a week with 2 shorter ones is supposed to be a good pattern to consolidate on for a bit to avoid injury. ❤️
