After completing C25K for the second time, a month of running 5k three times a week or every second day, with recently bought new running shoes I am now attempting to run up to 10k. And the plan really does work!! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ Today is a rest day, but i was so pleased with myself on Sunday in managing to run an unbelievable 8k, I thought i should share.

Excellent run and time for you Sonia, there I was saying that I hope to run 8K this Wednesday, I hope to run it in hour, wow you managed 8K in 52 minutes, if that was a 10K it would be just over an hour, once again congratulations.

Thank you!! It was weird that i found the two runs of 4k and 5k before pretty tough going, just not good runs mentally. But i started this one off nice and easy with lots of little steps with my feet not too high off the ground, with more into a running style later and it worked!! Also the adrenaline rush of reaching so far... My 5k now seems to average out at 32-33 minutes now. The shoes were a risk. I had Brooks before and ordered these Asics in an Easter sale only knowing I am a neutral comfort runner and chose half a size bigger than normal. But they are much better for long distance and I am really feeling the difference ๐Ÿ˜Š

Brilliant effort, it's a great plan, as you say it does work. 10k will be under those lovely new trainers very soon. Happy running ๐Ÿค—

Well done, Iโ€™m so glad to hear about your experience as Iโ€™m on week 3, after the C25k plus consolidation and my 5k run yesterday was awful. Iโ€™m having a good rest day today, especially as itโ€™s raining! then 7k here we come, I hope I manage to be somewhere near as successful as you.

I think we all have good and bad running days, this heat didnโ€™t help. At least when the rain stops it will be cooler. Just a 4k run today. I must not try and push myself too much on the shorter runs, i think that is also half the problem. As for the 7k I am sure you will kill it. And the rush for achieving it afterwards... You can do it.

Thank you!! ๐Ÿ˜Š What surprised me was i did a long 12k walk the day before and my calves were still aching... ๐Ÿ˜‚ Planning a route that is mostly a downward slope helps ;) Especially during the last few km.

I love the downhills as it gives me time to get ready for the blinking up hills where I live๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
