I'm so delighted with myself - having started the C25K programme in April, last Sunday I did my first 10k run. I did another 10k this morning. So far I feel that my body is up to the task, although I do have a bit of a niggle in my ankles - a little warning sign not to overdo it I think.
Each time I managed it in just under an hour.
I would like to maintain the 10k until my joints are ready for me to push a little harder, a little further.
I'm thinking that at the moment I should do Parkrun (5k), local pootle (7-8k) and long run (10k) as my weeky schedule.
But then... what should my next challenge be?
I was thinking, perhaps aim for ten miles (about 16k) next, then aim for 13 miles (about 20k) - the half-marathon distance?
How would you pace it?
I'm not following a programme, but I followed the 10% rule in getting myself from 5 to 10k - although I spread it out a little, 10% a fortnight rather than 10% a week, and I wasn't totally strict about it.
Would love your opinions.
