After completing the C25K a few months back, I continued running, just once in the week and a Park Run at the weekend. This weekend I am doing then great south 5k Saturday and the 10 mile Sunday! It was a goal when I started C25K. I know I will be slow and walking a fair bit on the 10 miles, but doing it all the same ! Bound to be others walking
Great run weekend : After completing the C25K... - Bridge to 10K
Bridge to 10K
Are you sure it's a good idea to run on consecutive days, you are running a 5K on Saturday and running 10 miles on Sunday although you admit that you will be doing a lot of walking in the latter. By all means do both and I wish you all the best for the runs, however, the advice here on C25K is never run on two days in a row.
Your right and that’s is very good advice. I intend to take the 5k very slow. Just get around it. I won’t be racing Any pains after then I will either leave the 10 miles or stroll it.
Are you sure there will be others walking? It’s not like a parkrun where walking is normal. Many of these events have a time limit and they take you out if your pace is too slow. I’d check the rules for the particular event if I were you, and consider carefully whether two events in two days justifies risking an injury that might stop you running altogether for a while.
Mmmm. All the people I know doing the Great South Run on Sunday are missing parkrun on Saturday.
Good luck to you . I’ll be one of the many cheering along the route
