Week 7 run 2!

I completed week 7 run 2 this morning and this do seem to gradually getting easier.

I've decided I'm going to try and pick up the pace a bit for my next run to push myself even further. I have no idea how far I run, I don't have any fancy apps or anything so I'm just guessing.

I'm really excited by the next few weeks. I can't believe I only have 7 runs until I'm finished! Eeeek! :)

Well done for getting this far, and staying so positive. I love the observation of '7 more runs'! Count down to Graduation.

I finished Week 7 Run 3 this morning. Not a great run for me, but I did it. And that is all that matters.

What I did on Week 7 Run 2 though was not quite what you are suggesting. I kept the pace the same, but said to myself, 'When Laura says you've done it, now walk', I am going to carry on at the same pace, and see if I can the last 5 minutes, and so make it 30 minutes running. And I did, it really wasn't that much harder.

The point being, I focus on doing the time, pace and therefore distance in a given time will come over the next few weeks. I don't want to up my pace, and not do the time. Do you see what I mean?

Do what suits you, and let us know how you get on. :-)


Hi Nemi and well done.

I completed Week 7 run 1 tonight and found it more enjoyable without the walking in between, so like you I'm looking forward to more long runs and hopefully graduating !

You mentioned not having an app - depends how fast you go but if you average 5 miles per hour then you'll cover just over 2 miles in 25 minutes or just over 3km.

Speed up to average 6 miles an hour and it is 2.5 miles or 4km in 25 minutes

I've no idea how fast I go either, but 5k in 30 minutes means averaging just over 6.2 mph

Good luck with the rest of the plan.
