Right, I've just finished week 6 and managed 4K in my 25 minute run. I'm pretty confident I could have run the final 1K, which would have been comfortably slower, but not disasterous. I have noticed the Great South Run 5k race is in 2 weeks and whilst that puts me at the end of week 8 not week 9, I'm pretty keen to give it a go.
What are peoples thoughts? I run every other day so can compress 6 runs into 12 days, would look at doing 2 at 25 mins, 2 at 28 and then the last two going for the full 5k.
I feel this is managable, it feels right to graduate at a race rather than pootling around the park, but I just don't know!
