New💥Ju-Ju's Magic Running Plan💥 10k/60minute plan starting April 5th - WHO'S IN?? 🤩

roseabiAdministrator

EDIT: I am closing comments on this post, please go to the new one here:

healthunlocked.com/bridgeto...

Hi everyone!

I would like to invite you to the next round of Ju-Ju's Magic Running Plan 10k/60minute running plan!

We will start next Friday, April 5th.

Please say "I'm in!" in the comments below, and I will add you to the list to be displayed on the weekly Magic Running Plan post - to hold you to account 😄

Please note I will be away Friday-Monday, but I will pick up your comments as soon as I can! Edit: I'm back now! 😄

As you may know, Ju-Ju has had to step away from Health Unlocked for a while due to work commitments. We want to keep the Magic Running Plan going on this forum until her return, so here is the Panther herself with the video invitation from January:

*we will be starting on April 5th this time 😊

So what can you expect from the Magic Running Plan?

★ The plan lasts for 8 weeks and has three runs per week

★ Included are some suggested strength exercises for you to try on most weeks

★ There will be, as last time, two versions of the Magic Running Plan:

- A 5k-10k distance plan which will build up your longest run to 10 km in Week 8

- A 35-60 minute time plan which will increase your longest run to 60 minutes in Week 8

★ We have printable plan sheets for you to stick on your fridge. You can download them from the following links:

- 10k distance: drive.google.com/file/d/13I...

- 60 minute time: drive.google.com/file/d/1sh...

LET'S RUN TOGETHER AND HAVE SOME FUN! 😊😊😊💥

I’m still in Roseabi, my second journey to 10k was paused for skiing so I repeated a few weeks on return and am now on week 4 (8k) again. I’ve got a 10k race on 23rd April so I should be there by then if all goes to plan.

Despite my better self judgement.. ok I’m in! (I’m away most of May but will do it when I can).

Oh why did I say I would do it. Gremlins having a field day... Will you explain the strength exercises and when we are supposed to do them etc?

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator
in reply to Couchpotato2

Welcome to Magic 10!

You can take as much time as you like to do the Magic 10 plan - absolutely no pressure! We always have people on different stages of the plan week by week. For example, see Dexy's comment above!

The strength exercises are optional, and they will be planks, squats, and jumps. I will go through them each week as they come up. I am going to suggest that if people want to try them they can do them straight after their runs, later in the day, or on separate days - whatever fits in with life!

Don't worry 😊😊😊

I’m in please 🙂

Does anyone have a clever app or way of programming the intervals in so I know when to run, and when to stop whilst still listening to my audiobook?

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator
in reply to HinchleyMum

Welcome!

We don't actually specify intervals in this programme - they are just runs of a certain length at your own pace xx

HinchleyMum
HinchleyMumGraduate10
in reply to roseabi

I just wondered then if it’s possible for an app like strava to beep or something when Ive reached the required distance, without having to extract my phone and look at it? (Will do distance rather than time as already running 5k in under 30 mins)

Thank you!

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator
in reply to HinchleyMum

Oh I see - sorry! 😄

Strava does not have that feature as far as I am aware, but there are interval timing apps available - I have used this one here (Android):

play.google.com/store/apps/...

HinchleyMum
HinchleyMumGraduate10
in reply to roseabi

Ah ok thank you that’s great - I’ll download that if it’s on iOS then work out approx timings to ensure I’ve done the right distances 😊

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator
in reply to HinchleyMum

One thing you CAN do on Strava (but in a browser rather than the app) is plot out a route for the required distance, such as this one (I think you should be able to view it anyway!):

strava.com/routes/11390361

HinchleyMum
HinchleyMumGraduate10

in reply to HinchleyMum

It might be worth considering a sports watch with gps now that you’ve got to this stage Hinchley M. I bought a garmin forerunner 35 which is great, but cheaper ones are available.

If not, you can set Strava to talk to you at the end of each kilometre and let you know your pace.

Have fun on the plan.

I listen to music and I have the fitbit running part on my phone. I can set it up to tell me every .5 or 1 km. I hear it through the headphones but if you have not got those it is loud enough. Map my walk does the same.

in reply to HinchleyMum

Excellent, I think he’s got a nice voice too.

As you’ve got iOS, you might like to try the app JogRunSprint on your short run. I think it’s great fun. I do 30 seconds jog, 20 seconds run , 10 seconds sprint.

HinchleyMum
HinchleyMumGraduate10
in reply to Dexy5

I’ll give it a go!

Runmeter will let you know when you have done each km (or other distances you can set). It annoyingly speaks over the top of your music, but is helpful to know when to turn round on a linear run.

HinchleyMum
HinchleyMumGraduate10

Thanks - I’ll look it up in the App Store

in reply to HinchleyMum

I just set the timer on my Samsung health app.. it gives 1km and half way point "shout outs".

It was only a slight problem on the 3.5 km run, but you generally know when you have done 0.5k.😊

You mentioned Strava, HinchleyMum: if you have already that (and don't want to download another app for a feature Strava already has), it does the announcing thing too (every km or whatever you set, plus minutes/km pace if you want that too), and yes, it's also over the top of your music, but it admittedly doesn't talk otherwise.

in reply to deadandalive

Yay! Used Strava speak thing this morning on Parkrun! Marvellous! Should’ve set it for every 1k not 1/2k but it was perfect. According to Strava (Official time not out yet) I finished in 26:14 which is a new pb. Too hot for me today though. Ran in shorts (😳) and T-shirt but still too hot. Think I may be a cool weather runner!

You could do your three weeks of consolidation first Laurzmum, and the see how you feel from there. Best not to increase time and distance until then really. People will all be on different weeks anyway. And others join in later.

Hi, I’m in. Finish couch to 5k plan next week, currently doing 5k on week 8 anyway so time to step up

5 K on week 8! That's going some. I did just under 5k this morning in 44 minutes! Well, I suppose we are a mixed ability group. But 5k is just about my limit.

Look at the time version, it might suit you better at the moment

Having missed the start of the last B210K, I've been following "Mike's add a bit now and again then spend six weeks doing 9K once a week whilst trying to improve pace" plan. Although "plan" is too grand a term for it. Anyhow, I could do with motivation to do some cross training so please count me in.

Yes please !! 'Team Fit4life are about to close down on week 5 of 10K plan ,so next week we will be our week 6 of 'Magic 10' !! We have been increasing our longest run by 1K each week since our consolidation runs following C25K, meaning we should graduate at 10K, 2 weeks this coming sunday .Would still like to be involved ,and chip in with our experiences where and when appropriate !! We couldn,t wait for this current plan to start as we needed to make enough ground to consolidate at 10K for our charity run in May but our own plan has been more or less the same as Ju-Ju,s 'Magic 10', so all is well !!

Sweet of you to ask, but unfortunately I'm out. Have been massaging and stretching the area and went for a short run this morning, but although it went better than last week there is no way I could keep up with the plan right now. May join you in a few weeks, though.

Hope so! In the meantime I suggest you keep up your exercise with walks and anything else you enjoy that doesn't cause pain (swimming?). And, if not already doing so, eccentric heel drops every day twice a day - again, use pain as your guide; back off if it hurts!

I'm already a little ahead of the game though. I've started this week because I know I'll struggle with the longer durations - I've never run for longer than 30 mins. Doing double that seems like an impossible task at the minute but I might surprise myself ;)

Hi Roseabi,

I joined in January but only managed 1 run per week for 5 runs then stopped for a month. I have restarted couch25K and am in week 5. I have the bridge210K printed out and may follow it out of sync, so to say. Not sure what happened. It started with ice on the footpaths, then long work hours away from home. The important thing is "I get knocked down, then I get up again......................." Love that song, and love running.
