Sign up here for the next 10 is the Magic Number Plan 🀩🀩🀩

Hello everybody. I would like to invite you to the next 10 is the Magic Number 10k plan. I’ve been taking some time to think about how to improve it for you, and also having a family holiday in Crete.... so just to summarise what we will be doing:

8 week plan to get you from 5 to 10k with consolidation weeks as well.

Each week I will be posting a strength exercise that you can do at work, at home, in the supermarket, in the loo..... designed to fit in with life!

A cut out and keep medal at the end.

Print off with the plan on to stick on your fridge.

So, if you are interested I will start on the 2nd of November. Please add your name on the comments as I will be having a list of names on the post to hold you to account!!!

Let’s do this and have a lot of fun too....

Great idea to include strengthening exercises indeed! Thank you, Ju-Ju! Even if I have already reached the 10K, I haven't been able to run the 10K more than 3 times since, so I'm going to follow the plan again just to get a bit of motivation and get back to some level of fitness if my body follows.

Great idea, then that 10k becomes par for the course ( as it were!!)

I'm not sure the 10K becomes par as I haven't been able to run more than 6 or 7 kms since I last ran 10k in May! So, we'll see. Let's hope I'll be as good this time as the first time ;-)

I can run for 40 minutes, however I do not cover 5k. Shall I give your plan a go or should I wait until your next one?

Not able to tell when you graduated, however in the past people have adapted the plan to be increases to your base time rather than distance. So for example for your long run each week:

Week 1: 44 minutes

Week 2 : 49 minutes

Week 3: 54 minutes

And so on. How about doing that?

Thanks Ju-ju, i'll increase the time i'm running for now like you suggested. Maybe i'll be ready for the 10k challenge the next time it comes around. I graduated in March, over the summer i have been doing 4k trails which i've grown to love. I'll have to go back to pavement soon now its getting darker, so i suppose it will be a good time to increase my distance. Bye for now.

Will you be posting the plan? I have a problem with my foot at the the moment so need to get that sorted but I'd like to give this a try - I may need to start 1 or 2 weeks behind everyone else but I think I need a structure to my running and this could be just the thing I'm looking for!

OK Ju-ju, add me on to your list. I have to confess I will have only just finished w8 of c25k by November 2nd but I'm booked in a 5k race on Nov 4th so have been doing a bit more than the app says as I'm nowhere near the distance yet although I did do a very very slow park run last week. My worry is my pace but I've been told on the forum many times to build distance before speed so that's what I'm doing. Your program will help as I've found the structure of having a plan really makes a difference

Great to have you, and no you need not worry about pace. However I suggest using the short run as an interval session which will help your pace and is also really good fun 😎πŸ’₯

i've just graduated in terms of running for 30mins but nowhere near 5k distance. Can I still follow your plan or do I need to build up to 5 k first.

If so what's the best way? Should I perhaps do some intervals eg run 20 walk 10 then run 20? Something of that sort?

Its a good idea to get to 5k first as the first week is a 5k and a 5.5k run. I will be doing another in the new year so you could build up and join then?

Hi Ju-Ju.

Had to have nearly a year off because of injury but completed C25K for a second time in June. Like you, need some structure & found your 10 is the magic number plan on my first visit to the forum for a loooonnnnngggg time!

Have decided to join you, a bit late though. Did the intervals today - will see how it goes.

It's good to be back.
