Great run weekend

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

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.

Yes you’re right: to be exact that advice only really applies in the first year of running (so it does seem to apply here) and it doesn’t have to do with running fast or slow because it’s not about getting tired it’s about avoiding injury.

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

And there will be people walking as well as running.
