I have been running since Feb 2013, that was when I started C25K. I graduated in April, then had 2 months break and started to run again- 5K a day for 3 days a week. I did RfL in July, did few Park Runs, they were all good and ran all the way under 32 minutes. So far my PB has been 32 minutes 2 Seconds for 5K but never under 30 minutes, NEVER! I would love to run 5K under 30 minutes, tried but could not do it.
I also ran a 10K once, now run 7K or 7.5K when I feel like, try to do it once a week in one of my 3 days. I don't do anything else other than walking to and from work 30 minutes a day on my rest days.
I like to challenge myself, that keeps me motivated. I tried to run under 30 minutes, but it seems so hard as I said, so I thought I would try to run 10K every day for 3 days a week, but I want to go there gradually.
I like to do a 1/2 marathon one day (long way to go I suppose!!) so what would be the important thing there? Does the time matter when you do long runs like that, or is it more important to complete the run without stopping??
Can anyone tell me what the important thing is, is it speed or distance? Should I keep trying to run 5K under 30 minutes or try to run 10K non-stop?? Both are equal challenges to me, but what would be the best to try?? Please let me know, any suggestion, idea, advice is much appreciated! Many thanks.
