Having graduated before xmas and feeling like a lot of us do: "what now? what am i going to do without the structure of C25k?" I decided that this year I would run 10k.
I'm still struggling to think of myself as a 'runner', I am a person who runs, seems to be getting better and actually enjoys it... but 10k...I have never done anything like that. 5k seemed achievable as I am sure I did about that distance when I was forced to run cross country in school, but 10k is the sort of thing I think 'runners' do.
Anyway, all that aside I have been trying to nudge up distance. I did 5k on my graduation run (32mins) and have done it at least once a week since.. today, in the drizzle, slower than usual, i managed 6.5k.
baby steps! I am feeling pretty happy with that given we are just halfway through the first month!
