ju-ju-Administrator

Hello everybody. I would like to invite you to the next 10 is the Magic Number 10k plan. So we are in the middle of Winter and likely to have eaten more than we normally do last month.... so... what better time to train for a 10k...


So this is what you can expect:

*The plan last 8 weeks and ach 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

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

So, if you are interested I will start on the 11th of January. 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...

Hi Ju Ju, please count me in - always inspired by your posts, loved your recent 10k plan advice about not letting injuries hold you back.

Unfortunately this time round I won't be able to follow the plan for real, as just starting to get back to running after 12 weeks + off due to a bad sprain and fractured ankle. (Be careful running in the dark)!!

All the best Richroux

Thanks Ju Ju, physio has let me start with some very short intervals this week - it's going to be a while before I'm back to where I left off. I didn't realise just how I'd miss it :)

Please include me ju-ju. I’m very slow, so have started already and just finished week 1, hoping that I won’t be too far finishing after the new intake do.

ju-ju-
ju-ju-Administrator
in reply to lexi6

Slow isn’t a word we use here, I prefer describing our ‘effort’ as we are all different. So I will do a gentle run, pushing it a bit run or an all out hardcore run, of which I don’t do many as it messes with my lungs!!! However if getting to the 5.5 is too much of a leap right now you could do the plan using your time. So your longer run will be 10% extra in time each week..... have a think what works best for you.

Hi Ju-ju...can i be included please.

I completed C25K in August and have been consolidating since with 2 30min runs and a longer run on the weekend. My longer runs are usually about 7k but i have got to 9k before.

I am very i intetested in learning some strengthening exercises.

Thanks x

ju-ju-
ju-ju-Administrator
in reply to Interstellar

Super and well done on your achievements ğŸ˜Ž

Willing to give it a go, though not sure I can actually achieve it since I seem to only gather 4K in 30 minutes. For some unknown reason, I totally run out of energy at 30 minutes, so it has only been few times that I have actually hit the 5k, despite graduating from C25K months ago...

What do you think? Am I setting myself up for failure? 🤔

I'd be interested to hear Juju's reply to you Helloyougorgeous as I'm exactly in the same boat. I've started doing Parkruns and can just about walk/run 5K in under 40 minutes after graduating C25K in October. I personally think it's too soon, I thought I would close in to 30 minutes consistently for a while before progressing on to 10k training but let's see what Juju says x

ju-ju-
ju-ju-Administrator
in reply to Rooster678

See my reply, and I also wanted to add that not everyone ever gets to 5k in 30 minutes. Your running is unique to you and 40 minutes is absolutely ok for a 5k. Should you want to work on your time in the future there is lots you can do, but you may not want to. I haven’t had a PB for a couple of years now as it’s really not my focus now.

Sooo, Rooster678, my thought now is that I will give it a go. Thanks ju-ju for your comments. Sounds like adapting to 10% time increment is worth a try.

I shall look at the plan and shout out if I need help!

in reply to ju-ju-

Oh yes, 😁

Hooray Rooster678! I am sooo glad you are also giving it a go!

Ju-ju, I was also pondering what the meaning of a baseline was and have just been looking through my recorded runs. I guess now after reading your recent comment, you mean that we are able to keep it up for 30 minutes?

I currently log 4km in 31 min and 5km in around 38min.

I am slightly puzzled as the time seems to have been increasing since August, when I was doing 5k in 33 minutes 🤔

Wow Helloyougorgeous, you're my mirror runner! My times are exactly the same and seem to be increasing too 😁

ju-ju-
ju-ju-Administrator
in reply to Helloyougorgeous

I think the plan should help as I include shorter runs and opportunities to do intervals which are a great workout. I’m going to suggest that you do it by time. So increasing by 10% each week on your time would be the way to go? I also think that some strategies may help you get further... such as going slower, breaking the run up with some short walk breaks and doing a there and back that you know will cover the distance you need to. You can do this and believe it or not, a lot of the issues we face with our running stem from our head not our legs.

Nibsy

Thanks ju-ju, the plan sounds great. Have been missing the C25K structure. Please count me in. Nibsy.

I'm a bit worried now I've seen the training plan! I can't actually run the full 5K yet. I can run for 30 minutes without collapsing in a heap, but that only covers 3 - 3.5K. Should I build up my minutes until I can cover 5K before I start the new plan or should I just go for it?

jimmers
jimmersGraduate10
in reply to Amerynthe

I think it’s best to consolidate your runs and build toward being comfortable with the 5k before trying B210K. I finished C25K in May, I think, and have been on a bit of a journey getting used to running. Only about feeling comfortable to try for 10k now! So I think it’s best taking your time and hopefully enjoying it more!

Amerynthe

Thanks, I've been consolidating regularly since I graduated on 20 December, and I don't want to discourage myself, so gradually building up the time until I can cover 5k will be good for me.

Hi, a time-building plan would be great! I am comfortable running 30 minutes, and I've done my most recent Park Run with a combination of running and walking in 47 minutes, so I'm getting there, just not making the distance within 30 minutes yet. If it's not too much trouble to include a timed version of the plan that would really help me - thank you!

The plan is gradual and has two weeks where you can consolidate where you have got to. Can you run 5k?

At the moment I'm just running about 3.5K in 30 minutes.

Hope you don't mind me jumping in on the conversation. I also run 3.5k in 30 mins but coming up to graduation I mixed in a couple of parkruns and found I could do 5k, slowly (42 mins) but running all the way. I've decided to give this a go because I've got my eyes on 10k now and I need structure. I don't want to influence you because I'm no expert but I'm just going to give it a go.

Ok I set a resolution to run 10k by May - so this is perfect.

Hi Juju, I am definitely interested, but I am not due to graduate from C25K until Sunday 13 January. Would it be too soon to start this programme. Really interested to hear your advice.

I think maybe this is too soon... it is better if you have graduated from C25k before starting but without knowing your current fitness and ability I dont know as you may well be perfectly placed to start.....

Hiya, I too miss the structure and need a kick up the proverbial! I'm not sure I will be able to do it but hey, I couldn't run at all till August last year! Believe in the program!! 😁

Hi Ju-Ju.

Happy New Year! 😀😀

As you know I've recently just graduated 10k but was wondering if I could join again for all the great advice,videos, plus extra exercises and strengthening stuff (which I need to concentrate on) 😁😁 plus be good to see if I'm improving.

Thank you

I’ve very recently graduated C25k and hoping for 10k towards June, so I’ll keep consolidating (and losing weight as that will help no end!) and please bear me in mind for one around Easter time if that’s a plan? I’d genuinely love to give it a try just now but running 5k is really tough at the moment so I need to consolidate for some time. Good luck to everyone: I will lurk here and back at C25k for a bit x

Absolutely, and good plan.... Easter isn’t far away and by then you will be in a really strong place to get to the 10k.... ğŸ˜Ž

Thank you

Morning. I may not be able to keep up with this as I finished Couch25k last summer (3.5k in 30) and haven’t much increased since then. Haven’t run for a month either. But I’ll give it a go as I need a target to get back into it.

There is a time element this time which gets you to 60 minutes, which you may prefer. But it’s entirely up to you ğŸ˜Ž

Yes please!

Hi! Please me too! Bring it on ha ha I'm so scared lol!! 🤣🤣

I'd like to join too please! 👟

I did my 30 min run on Thursday. Can we mix and match and run to time some runs and distance others or do we need to stick to one?

Have I missed the start? I replied but maybe there was something else I had to do?!

Starting late to the plan - what is the plan?

Hi Ju Ju, I'm on week 9 of the coach to 5k program and a few of us are thinking of doing a 10k in January. We're all really keen but want a program which is similar to the 5k just to keep us motivated seeing that we're doing so well with 5k. Several people have mentioned you so I I wanted to contact you to see if it's possible to follow your program for our 10k long term plan? I would appreciate any advice. Many thanks.
